Typhoon is strong tropical storm that develops in the western part of the North Pacific Ocean. This region is referred to as the Northwestern Pacific Basin, and is the most active tropical storm basin on Earth, accounting for almost one-third of the world's annual tropical storms.
A typhoon differs from a cyclone or hurricane only on the basis of location. A hurricane is a storm that occurs in the Atlantic Ocean and northeastern Pacific Ocean, a typhoon occurs in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, and a cyclone occurs in the south Pacific or Indian Ocean.
Typhoon may form throughout the whole year within the northwestern Pacific, where the most numerous and intense tropical storms occur on earth. Typhoons move from the east or southeast to the west or northwest, Some of the deadliest typhoons in history have struck China. Southern China has the longest record of typhoon impacts.
Today, August 23, 2017, in the afternoon, Typhoon Hato strike Pearl River Delta, including Ganton the city in which where I compose and publish this video program.
Before Hato's strike, I don't know the typhoon will come today, in the past 3 to 4 days, just like most local people, I have strong feeling of swelter and stuffiness.
From yesterday evening, wind begins blowing and rain begins dropping.
Today, about one o'clock in the afternoon, I find the wind blows at a rarely harsh scale with heavy rainfall.
Then, in the evening, I check out the news, knowing that Pearl River Delta is heavily struck by Typhoon Hato, accidents occur and people die or disappear in many places.
Here I grieve over those suffered from Hato, and hope all can learn more from the disaster and live safely.
This is RML, on the evening of August 23, 2017, with the wind howls outside windows.

I shoot this video in Pacific ocean when we sailed to Korea and encountered with very rough sea. The weather was actually very calm - no wind and the sun was shining. Funny, isn't it?
For reference, the 170m long ship was fully loaded and had a freebord height of only 4m. Therefore the waves were flushing on the deck so often. Enjoy it! Watch also my channel for other ammazing maritime videos ;)
