Weather underground says a world class top size typhoon (hurricane) is going right at China

https://weather.com/storms/typhoon/news/2018-07-05-western-pacific-typhoon-maria

Now I put this in speculation  since it is merely a possibility that some Chinese mining farms will flood out.

but western digital was crushed in 2011



and here is a recent flood story in China

http://marketcoinnews.com/2018/07/flood-in-sichuan-china-destroyed-bitcoin-mining-centers/

So to those that want lower difficulty  rates  keep your fingers crossed  Roll Eyes

Do you think that the last days hashrate drops is because sichuan?

I read many sites and none of these have some proofs, some say that is because the flood some says that the flood was 2 days after the hash drops.

No I think summer heat  caused issues and mnay turned off gear or lowered speeds.

MY  T1's  have multiple speeds we had a 7 day Heatwave in New Jersey

I had to set all of then to lowest speed  about 14 th vs 16.5 th

even then 1 unit  would only run 2 boards

So I dropped from 82.5th  to 66.1th

I think T1 and avalon 841 owners dropped hash rates due to heat more then anything else.

The s9 and s9I are a little better in heat.

Typhoons don't affect inland very far at all..
And property anywhere near coastline in China is the most expensive as is electricity....Most heavily developed...
Most mines will be located FAR from the costs near cheaper power cheaper land.

I lived near the coast in China...And in Taiwan...Typhoons are so common everyone prepares accordingly...HIGHLY doubtful any local would put his mine op at risk.
Temp power loss will be often...but they know to protect from flooding.

Yeah I spent time in the Philippines and they  build for typhoons my brother lived in Taiwan for years and they build for typhoons and this storm seems to be a 4 not a 5.

It is why I placed it in speculation.  Still it is action and maybe a few farms get damaged.

When hurricane Sandy hit USA in 2012 hash rate dropped.  I did okay as I had power and internet.

heck my 22 gpus doing 16gh  were 16000/21000000 = 0.0007619 of the network

 37,743,432,060 GH/s x 0.0007619 = 28,756,900  would be what I need to be at that percent. 

So I need 2054 s9's to be the equal of 22 hd7970's  times changed.

I'd be more worried about earthquakes and landslides with modern mines to be honest. That or Dam bursts

I'm actually in Southeast China (Jiangxi province) right this moment and will be there for some time, last time I visited I was in the same province and just like what Philopolymath said the storms really don't go far inland at all. During my stay I just some moderately heavy rain the entire day and some winds, business as usual. I was also in a typhoon in Hong Kong and things were also just fine. There was hardly any damage at all, things are really engineered to withstand these types of storms near the coast just like in most countries. In some more rural-ish areas near where I am living though, drainage can be an issue during monsoon season right now and tropical rainfall.

on a different note than mining. I really love Okinawa, this typhoon is really going to wreck the island chain. I hope everyone on there stay safe (not that they're here on this forum tho).
