After Typhoon Fanapi

Typhoon Fanapi was disastrous to the county of Kaohsiung. The level 3 typhoon hammered the area; flooding many homes and leaving many without electricity. Here are some pictures close to our street the day after the typhoon.

Fallen trees just outside the Hanshin Mall

It took a couple of days, but the trees were restored to their original position, albeit, with some bandages and some extra support.

With the strength of the typhoon, I am surprised that there was not more damage. A school was shut down for a week for a cleanup, and apartment buildings were damaged and flooded. Let's hope that the worse of typhoon season is behind us.
