The Storm Leaves
Typhoon Morakot left a path of destruction in its aftermath.  The full extent of the damage may not be known for a few days.  The AP reports that 400 people are missing in Pingtung after a mudslide buried a village.  Michael Turton and David Reid have both compiled several links of typhoon related news.  Taiwanese Secrets posted some basic information on typhoon season and how best to prepare for a storm.
