Typhoon Morakot


After
forming as a tropical depression over the Pacific Ocean about 1,000 km
east of the Philippines on August 2nd, Typhoon Morakot built in power
and moved quickly west. Over the past several days, the storm has
passed over the Philippines, Taiwan and Mainland China, causing
hundreds of millions of dollars in damage due to high winds, flooding
and mudslides. Southeast China evacuated nearly 1 million people ahead
of the storm, after Morakot broke many records in Taiwan, dumping a
total of 2.5 meters (100 inches) of rain on the island. At least 40
people are known to have died so far, but hundreds remain missing -
many from one village in Taiwan, reportedly engulfed by a mudslide
during the storm. (36 photos total)
