Typhoons can have a devastating impact on Taiwan and other countries in Asia/Pacific. As I record this podcast Typhoon Yutu having had a devastating effect on Northern Philippines was leaving the region but leaving lots of precipitation behind in Taiwan. For Taiwanese, typhoons are a normal part of life, during the season between June and November. I talk about some of my past typhoon experiences. For travellers as long as you stay indoors and take advice from locals you’ll usually be only inconvenienced for anywhere from a few hours to maybe a day depending on the severity of the typhoon. Hundreds of flights can be cancelled so it could cost you a day or two on your way out, or possibly a delay arriving.
