Wow. Brings back some memories that I tried to keep from coming out. Rode out two typhoons mid-island near Taichung in 1968 and flew evac. to Itazuki Japan for another. Remember riding a motorcycle to Sun Moon Lake and the road washed out with about 2.0 ft left on the side of the mountain. Got the bike across but no one else could. Happened just after I stopped inside a tunnel to fix a problem. Also, in the late 80s took a train from Shanghai on the mainland south which took over 14 hours. Found out a typhoon had destroyed the track in front of us and the Chinese Army was fixing it as we went along. Got into the city (cant remember the name but it is famous for West Lake) and it was like a Hollywood movie. Thousands of Chinese peasants sitting on the ground in the rain around the train station. Had to walk to the hotel and it was the only one with a generator and air conditioning. Trees were down, buildings were destroyed and people were living in the streets.
