Trials and travails of a Taiwanese-American kid in Taiwan
Friday, July 14, 2006
Taiwan is battered by numerous typhoons and tropical storms every year (usually during July until October). The 4th typhoon this year, Bilis passed through Ilan and is now well on its way toward Fujian province.
Although it's been categorized as a "weak" typhoon, Bilis is currently drenching Taiwan's south-central mountainous areas. My town, Feng-shan, has had roads leading out of the village cut off by landslides and swollen creeks (now chocolate covered rivers).
