Typhoon.

With the exception of a few small showers, July in Taiwan has been marked by baking heat and searingly sunny days. That sunshine disappeared today as the brooding clouds of a tropical storm passed over the island. The city darkened, bamboo groves rattled in the wind, and the roads flooded with muddy water.
