Storms NANMADOL und TALAS


Torrential rains and fierce winds have hit south-east Taiwan causing extensive disruption, as Tropical Storm Nanmadol swept over the island.

Thousands of people were evacuated and there were reports of flooding and power cuts across the region.

Taiwan had deployed 35,000 troops to prepare for the storm’s onslaught, but there were no reports of serious damage as the storm’s intensity diminished.

It had already wrought havoc in the Philippines, leaving at least 12 dead.

Tropical Storm Nanmadol – downgraded from a typhoon – brought winds of 135 km/h (84mph), but it largely skirted the island. Taipei escaped the brunt of the storm.
