    Typhoon Matmo, the first typhoon to make landfall on Taiwan in 2014, has brought torrential rain and strong winds to the island.  In the capital, the normally bustling downtown district, adjacent to the Taipei Main Train Station, was nearly deserted.  I witnessed downed trees, signs, and scooters.  Island-wide, local media is reporting that at least ten people have been injured, while financial institutions, government offices, and schools have been closed for the day.
