The flight we took diverted over Taiwan on Sunday to avoid Typhoon
Xangsange, that was over Manila at that time.  From the attached tracking
image for this typhoon it appears it was over southern Taiwan yesterday
afternoon (EST) and moving toward Taipei.  Position 26 is at 18Z/31 Oct and
27 at 00Z/1 Nov.  Sounds like Flight #6 was trying to beat the storm....?

I echo Colette's thoughts for any who may have had loved ones on Flight
