Typhoon Megi (Weather)

One of the few typhoons ive seen that affected the whole country simultaneously. Notable in particular for it's stamina - people in Taipei said it blew hard for 12 hours or more.

Hualien was the hardest hit with the wind, though Tainan ended up with the most rain. In fact Tainan had 1220 mil for Sep - surely a record - their ave is 178

In Taidong, as is usual for any typhoon that goes in north of us, there was nothing much until the eye made landfall, then we did get some decent back-half wind. Preceeding that was a short but intense Foehn wind - apparently the temp leapt to 36 in a matter of minutes - but only lasted less than an hour - though that was enough to cause serious burn-off damage to the foilage of many trees.

Small tropical storm passed under Taiwan today - this year they just keep coming
