Pop-up Typhoon in SW Taiwan (Weather)

It's not listed as a typhoon but I can report that it definitely is one - just formed off the south west coast of Taiwan - affecting Pingtung, Kaohsiung, and Tainan - which is where I am.

Shaping up as a major 'zao gao' situation as no day off was called but conditions are quite intense

Big rain, big wind - it's good to enjoy a typhoon from the safety of a concrete hotel though not ideal for sightseeing

80-90 mil per hour in Kaohsiung over the last several hours
