Typhoon damage?

Hi everyone. I’m new to the forum and entertaining some jobs in Taiwan. I’ve been up there 3 times (Taipei and Taichung) and loved it.

I live “down here” in Guam and we get yearly typhoons that really mess stuff up. I was wondering how bad the typhoon damage gets up there? Do you folks loose power and water? And for how long?

Pongsona in 02 knocked power and water out down here for 3 weeks and basically flattened the island.

locally there can be flooding and utility outages, and mountain areas often see mudslides and fatalities but most people are not likely to be bothered by them, unless time off from work bothers you :slight_smile:
