TAIPEI, Taiwan — Northern Taiwan was enjoying a reprieve Monday evening after being lashed by
heavy rain and lightning earlier in the day.
Although a heavy rain advisory was still in place for all of Taiwan proper — with an extremely heavy rain advisory remaining in place for Taipei and New Taipei — skies had cleared up and looked set to be partly to mostly clear through to Tuesday morning.
Occasional rain and thunder is forecast for Tuesday afternoon, except for the outlying islands, according to the Central Weather Bureau.
Earlier Monday, thundershowers and strong winds sent people fleeing indoors and caused chaos on the roads, as blankets of rain made the Taipei skyline fade into gray. [FULL STORY]
