  • I think the first sentence should be that it was the first typhoon tracked by the JTWC. That's a little more interesting than what's there.
  • "Billie's affects" - any time it's a noun, use "effects". Ditto down in the impact section
  • "JTWC bulletins and warnings commenced accordingly" - what was the storm number?
  • I'm confused. Were the peak winds according to JMA or JTWC?
  • I wouldn't really say "forcing" is the appropriate word when describing extratropical transition
  • Anything more on the Japan deaths? That sounds pretty deadly without having much info
  • "resulting in the additional displacement of people" - additional to what? The homeless in Taipei? I'd guess they became homeless because of this damage.
  • Anything else for China?

All in all the article is decent. It just seems on the short side. I know it was 1959, so I'm not expecting too much. Just wondering if it's thorough or not. Cheers! ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 20:51, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
