Typhoon Aere (Weather)

by dulan drift, Friday, October 07, 2016, 18:18 (380 days ago)

This is turning into the little typhoon that could. The actual storm is tiny, and it's already passed Taiwan, but it's got this tail thing happening that's causing major havoc on the east coast of Taiwan. Somehow this small typhoon has organized this massive stream of rain into its orbit it's all feeding directly into the east coast of Taiwan.

400 mil already for Dong He and no sense that it's anywhere near over. In fact Aere is predicted to stall in its current location and as such this could go on for several more days.

Already we have:

Section of road collapsed into the sea just south of Dulan

Several Landslides between Dulan and Taidong city including at both the recently green-lighted mega-resort development sites - which, despite evidence presented by protesters showing those sites were extremely prone to landslides, were 'assessed' by the Land Consevation Department and given the thumbs up. That's criminal greed that is destined to cost lives if either of those resorts are ever built.
