hi everybody...

I have to write 5 topic sentences about the Typhoon Krosa and I'm not absolutely sure whether I did it right. Would be very nice if someone could have a look at it and tell me, whether the sentences are good as topic sentences.

1) China's eastern coast prepares for tropical storm Krosa, after it killed four people in Taiwan. (here I'm not sure whether I have to write Tropical Storm with capital letters)

2) Facing the approaching tropical storm Krosa, Chinese autorities have evacuated more than a million people.

3) As Typhoon Krosa battered Taiwan, it killed five and injured more than 50 people. (Is this too short for a topic sentence? and would I have to say: ..., it killed five people and injured more than 50 people)

4) Typhoon Krosa lashed Taiwan with powerful winds and torrential rains, killing four people and cutting pwer to nearly half a million homes.

5) Although Typhoon Krosa weakens to a tropical storm, China is prepared for the worst and has evacuated southern Zhejiang and northern Fujian. (weakens ore is weakening?)

Well I'm not sure whether they are good like this, and I'm also not sure about the punctuation. Would be very nice if someone could help me. Have a good weekend....

Fortuhi everybody...

I have to write 5 topic sentences about the Typhoon Krosa and I'm not absolutely sure whether I did it right. Would be very nice if someone could have a look at them and tell me, whether the sentences are good as topic sentences.

1) China's eastern coast prepares for tropical storm Krosa after it killed four people in Taiwan. (here I'm not sure whether I have to write Tropical Storm with capital letters) No, you don't need capitals.Also, omit the comma after Krosa.

2) Facing the approaching tropical storm Krosa, Chinese authorities have evacuated more than a million people. Fine

3) As Typhoon Krosa battered Taiwan, it killed five and injured more than 50 people. (Is this too short for a topic sentence? and would I have to say: ..., it killed five people and injured more than 50 people) It looks fine to me.


4) Typhoon Krosa lashed Taiwan with powerful winds and torrential rains, killing four people and cutting power to nearly half a million homes. Fine

5) Although Typhoon Krosa weakens to a tropical storm, China is prepared for the worst and has evacuated southern Zhejiang and northern Fujian. (weakens or is weakening?) Either "As Typhoon Krosa weakens" or "Although Typhoon Krosa has weakened to..."

Well I'm not sure whether they are good like this, and I'm also not sure about the punctuation. Would be very nice if someone could help me. Have a good weekend....

Thank you a lot for your quick answer Emotion: smile Just got another two questions. Is it ok to write Typhoon with a capital letter? And do you think these sentences would be good as topic sentences, because I have to write a paragraph to each of it.
#1 If it is used as part of the name of the storm, "Typhoon Krosa", yes, you need the capital letter. If it is merely stating that it is a typhoon called Krosa, then no.

#2 I don't see why not.
