Typhoon twisted mail boxes- become tourist attraction
The aftermath of a typhoon is usually destructive, but few could expect the creation of a tourist attraction by the latest, Super Typhoon Souldelor, this weekend.
Two sheet iron letter boxes in Taipei were left bent in the same direction as the typhoon made landfall on Taiwan and are now a hit tourist attraction, with hundreds of people lining up to have their photos taken with them.
Chunghwa Telecom said it plans to put up a sign beside the two boxes to bear witnesstarget=_blank class=infotextkey>witness to Soudelor and sell related souvenirs.
Soudelor, the biggest storm to hit China this year, left at least six people dead, four missing and 379 injured in Taiwan. The Central Weather Bureau lifted the typhoon alert on Sunday morning, but warned there would still be heavy rainfall in south and east Taiwan.
