Typhoon Kai-Tak Kills People in Vietnam Before Losing Strength


November 4, 2005 (HDW) Danang, Vietnam – Typhoon Kai-Tak hit the east coast of Vietnam on Wednesday and killed over a dozen people in floods and other rain-related calamities. Kai Tak lost power as it moved inland, but it was able to knock out electricity to large parts of the city of Danang before doing so. Typhoon Kai-Tak almost rivaled Typhoon Damrey from a month ago in its destructive power and casualties. Vietnam is still recovering from the flooding and damaged power lines produced by the storm.


Typhoon Kai-Tak was a powerful typhoon when it was observed in the above picture by a NASA satellite on October 30, 2005. At that time, Typhoon Kai-Tak had sustained winds of 140 kilometers per hour (85 miles per hour), and the storm continued to gather strength as it moved toward its landfall on the Vietnamese coast.
