Super Typhoon in Taiwan – level 2

Super Typhoon in Taiwan – level 2

16-09-2016 07:00

A super typhoon hit Taiwan and brought torrential rain. Winds of speeds of up to 216 kilometres per hour blew things around the streets.

Schools and businesses closed and 1,500 residents evacuated. Tens of thousands of homes were left without power. The typhoon was the most powerful storm of the year.

Taiwan felt the full force of the typhoon on Wednesday. On Thursday, the typhoon is going to move to China. It comes just over two months after another typhoon. That one killed 86 people in Taiwan and East China.

Difficult words: typhoon (a tropical storm), torrential rain (very heavy rain), resident (a person who lives somewhere).
