Taiphoon Wipha moves on to China

Wipha has left the Island, however the rain if forcast to continue for the rest of the week. The winds were not severe as the typhoon did not make landfall, however there is alot of flooding and there have been several landslides. The hills around Taipei have recieved around 450mm of rain so far, some areas over 700mm. It's amazing to think that I have lived in places that are lucky if they recieve that much rain in a whole year! Wipha has moved on to mainland China, where over 1 500 000 people have been evacuated from coastal areas south of Shanghai.
