When monsoons and typhoons strike Asia, as they do every year in the steamy heat of summer, people ride out the storms and eventually take inventory of the death and destruction. This year, the southwest monsoons have swept out of the Indian Ocean with unusual force. They have lashed Asia from China to the Philippines with torrential rains and transformed the skies into displays of streaking lightning.

The Santa Ana winds that roared through Southern California, creating havoc for firefighters and downing trees and power poles, may also have brought an unexpected problem: water pollution. High bacteria readings were reported at 14 sites along Orange County's coast from Laguna Beach to Huntington Beach. The pollutants may have been carried from distant inland farms and dairies to the coastal waters by the fierce winds, several experts said.
