Couple things I forgot to mention.

The streets were very quiet. Very few people out. Schools and businesses are officially closed today, but there were still convenience stores and some restaurants open. Looks like most people are staying home today. My wife’s shop is open, but they opened late.

On the buses they now have LCD TVs that show a digital broadcast channel called Bee TV. It usually plays short animations, advertisements, and English lessons. Today on the way back home there was a public service announcement from the Central Weather Bureau telling people what to do and not do during a typhoon. Two things not to do: climb in landslide areas and go swimming in the ocean. I guess there’s some people out there that need to be told such things, but I would have thought it would be obvious.
