Typhoon Krosa

Images from various presses. According to the Council of Agriculture, the typhoon caused TWD 749 million (USD 22.9 million) in agricultural damages. Taipei lost a few hundred trees, suffered some flooding and cars being smashed by billboards and the such, but since it's mostly a concrete jungle, the damage wasn't so bad. After two days of arriving at work at 5h00 and 6h00 to do lives for hours and hours in the rain and wind, I was pretty tired. But I was happy.
