Sinlaku moves on

Typhoon Sinlaku has moved away from Taiwan and has weakened into a tropical depression. Four people were confirmed killed and seven are still missing. My roof has stopped leaking. The trees in my area have taken a pounding, but life has quickly returned to normal here in Taipei.

Mr Q, I just watched a video on BBC of a hotel in Taiwan that fell over because of the flood waters. Where was that? There looked like some terrible mudslides and flooding.

That hotel and a couple of others was in a hotspring area in the centre of the island. So far eleven people are now confirmed dead... the flooding and landslides are usually more damaging than the winds.
