This month, Typhoon Soudelor has been wreaking destruction upon Taiwan and the eastern coast of China, and among its victims have been a pair of Taipei mailboxes. 

The symmetry of their damaged state has turned the mailboxes into an online sensation in China, where people have celebrated their cute appearance as a couple resisting the storm’s destructive force. Locals have also flocked to the site to have their picture taken alongside Taipei’s newest tourist attraction.
