Taiwan braces for Typhoon Nepartak; 200 mph winds expected

Recommended Posts

TAIPEI, Taiwan, July 7 (UPI) -- Thousands of people in Taiwan have been evacuated ahead of a powerful typhoon packing wind gusts in excess of 200 mph and more than 3 feet of rain, which could usher in landslides and flash flooding.

Super Typhoon Nepartak is expected to cross the island country's central mountainous region Thursday into Friday. The storm is positioned to also threaten Japan's Ryuku Islands and eastern China. Flights to and from the area have been canceled and some 35,000 soldiers have been put on standby. Maximum wave height is 43 feet.


luckily my wife's cousin aborted the flight to taiwan last week.. she actually had a premonition that something bad was going to happen!.
