More storms and typhoons in the region

There are, once more, a relentless amount of typhoons and storms terrorising the region.

First of all there's typhoon Krosa which pummeled Taiwan, killing four in the fiercest Typhoon (they're called Hurricanes in the Atlantic and Typhoons in the Western Pacific) to hit Taiwan this year. Just to go on to China, where about a million people are evacuated.
The storm is expected to strike southern Zhejiang and northern Fujian provinces late on Sunday, just South of Shanghai.

Vietnam, in the meantime, has been hit by a tropical storm, named Durian and 50 are killed and many more are missing.

Here's some interesting information about Hurricanes/Typhoons and a link to a storm tracker.

Let's hope all this passes without loss of live and good luck to all the people living in those areas.

Typhoon Krosa is doing something crazy! Check out this tracking page of it:

It seems to have remembered that we have a 3-day weekend in Japan, and decided to come back towards Okinawa!
