Typhoon Soudelor to hit Taiwan as a Category 3 or 4 storm on Friday

Typhoon Soudelor to hit Taiwan as a Category 3 or 4 storm on Friday | This Can Be Important To You! | Scoop.it
Typhoon Soudelor may be re-intensifying as it approaches Taiwan, raising the possibility it will hit land on Friday as a Category 3 or 4 storm.
Bonnie Burns's insight:

This would make it the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane, capable of inflicting widespread damage from high winds, storm surge flooding and massive amounts of rainfall in Taiwan. The country's mountainous terrain can wring out copious amounts of rainfall from landfalling storms by forcing the warm, moist air to rise, cool and condense into rain clouds, through a process known as orographic lift.
