Typhoon is a natural disaster that raid Taiwan annually. From June to October is its buffeting season. It is not as fierce as a hurricane or a twister, but since Taiwan is a small island, and populations are intensive, it can cause a catastrophe every time it shows up.
The only people in Taiwan who would love Typhoon are those students. The reason is obvious, because they will not have to go to school when a Typhoon attacks. However, the rest of Taiwanese, especially farmers and fishmen, paradoxically hate and respect Typhoon at the same time. It can destroy the harvests, but many older generations believe that Typhoon is an act of God, the King of the Sea Dragons.
Nevertheless, Typhoon is a major problem in Taiwan, many precautions are needed to be taken in advance. Taiwan is a wealthy country, but there are things that money cannot solve. The only way is to learn more about it and perhaps one day Taiwan will be a Typhoonless region.
