The comparison photos really show the extent of the damage.

An interesting article by Tainaner Matt Gibson of his experiences during Typhoon Morakot.
And Richard from Barking Deer keeps us updated on the hiking trails in the area.
While I’m busy linking, here is Steven Crooks fact filled article and on his Bradt travel guide book page some lovely photos by Craig Ferguson
And finally a site I always go to for very thorough, but very green politics; Micheal Turton’s View from Taiwan. Scroll down for insight into the Dalai Lama’s visit and Morakot.
As for Namasia, lots of people have driven out of the mountains now. They say the road is rough, that is probably an understatement as these people are used to rough roads. Only little blue truck access. I was planning to be on the road by now but another typhoon is on it’s way and you don’t want to be on any mountain roads in heavy rain, much less ‘rough’ ones.
