Unless Talim suddenly decides to defile some laws of nature and turn North more than expected, my gut feeling is that for the North-East of Taiwan it will be like being raped in the ass by a pack of HIV positive gorillas who spent 5 years in segregation watching only the last episode of Lost.
Still hoping the center will pass above my house, it would be the only upside!
Talim is currently forecast to make landfall between Yilan and Hualien as a Cat4, with up to 20" of rain within the first 12 hours (against 32" in 5 days from Harvey, just for reference). There’s still a chance it may “just” be a Cat3, but rapid intensification may make things worse.
Looks like I won’t have electricity for a few days!
