Heavy rain in Taiwan brought flooding to large swaths of northern Taiwan on Friday
as the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) upgraded its weather warnings to cover the northeast coast.
Multiple rain induced disasters have been reported, include a tractor falling into a ravine in New Taipei’s Gongliao District. The driver of the vehicle has since been rescued and dispatched to hospital.

New Taipei Mayor Eric Chu has cancelled all previously scheduled events for the day and is making inspection tours of disaster areas. [FULL STORY]
