The season of tropical cyclones lasts from May to October. They pass northwards over Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea to Japan, leaving in their path swaths of devastation, death, and billions of dollars worth of damage. In December 1945, while attacking the Japanese main islands, modern American aircraft-carriers steamed right into heavy typhoons. A disaster that led the US Marine to set up the first forecasting system.
