We have got the message that a typhoon is coming. According to the observatory, the typhoon, estimated to be stronger than last one, is arriving at our city tonight and will cause violent wind and rain. Therefore, we wish every family would make full preparations for it. Do remember to bring in the outside clothes, close your windows and put your flowerpots in the room lest they should be damaged or should fall down to hurt others. Don t go out at night unless there is something very urgent. Especially those old people and young children should be most careful to refrain from dangers. It is said the typhoon is leaving tomorrow afternoon.
