Of all the natural disasters occurring in Taiwan, tropical cyclones are the most serious. Over a 20-yr period, Taiwan was hit by an average of 3.7 typhoons per year. These storms can produce heavy rainfall and strong winds, leading to severe damage to agriculture and industry, and serious loss of human life.
