Super Typhoon Nepartak ripped the Taiwanese coastline last night, coming ashore as the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane. The storm’s winds were estimated at 150 mph. In Taitung City, the wind was strong enough to fling cars like toys.

At least two people have been reported killed in the aftermath of the cyclone, and 66 have been injured, the BBC reports.

James Reynolds, a professional typhoon chaser and documentarian, rode out the storm in Taitung City, where its strongest winds came ashore. The video he shot shows the violent winds and driving rain that lashed the urban landscape, tearing at street signs and lampposts. The wind is howling so hard it makes you wonder how anything could stay upright.

The center of Nepartak made landfall just 10 miles south of Taitung. That means Reynolds was positioned in the strongest part of the typhoon, the “right front quadrant,” where the typhoon’s counterclockwise winds combine with the forward motion of the cyclone.

Dave McKenna, a motorcycle stunt rider from Sydney, was also in Taiwan at the time of landfall. “Super typhoon Nepartak is headed right here to Taidong, Taiwan,” McKenna wrote on Instagram. “I’m on the 7th floor and the whole building is shaking, roofs are flying and the streets already look like a bomb has gone off, and this is just the start of it.”

On Thursday as it approached Taiwan, Super Typhoon Nepartak passed over a buoy that registered a pressure of 897 millibars, one of the lowest pressures ever measured by such a device. The lower the pressure, the stronger the storm. “Any time a tropical cyclone’s pressure drops below 900 millibars, it is in rare company,” the Capital Weather Gang’s Jason Samenow wrote Thursday.

More than 400,000 people lost power during the typhoon’s landfall, the AP reports, and more than 15,000 people were evacuated before it made landfall.

Once the eye of the storm had passed, Reynolds ventured into the Taitung streets to assess the aftermath. Cars that were neatly parked the day before were tossed and totaled. “This one was just flung against this tree,” Reynolds described on Periscope. “Got one over there, which is on its roof. You know these are large vehicles. I was filming them as they were parked here. They were just flung.”

“So that’s pretty crazy — the power of the wind — to be able to do this to these vehicles,” he added.
