typhoon Talim ravaged Taiwan last week and plowed into China. Super typhoon Nabi is now making landfall in southern Japan with 125mph susatained
China's eastern province of Zhejiang is bracing for more storms triggered by typhoon Nabi after another tropical storm battered the area and killed
at least 56 people, state media said on Sunday.
It estimated the economic damage caused by typhoon Talim in four eastern provinces was about 7.1 billion yuan ($877 million).
It is likely to be closest to Kyushu on Tuesday morning, threatening a wide swathe of western Japan with strong winds and heavy rain.

The timing couldn't be worse for these tropical systems to be making landfall, considering Katrina's impact too. I suspect we shall see some
dramatic effects on the global economy this coming week.
