TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Following three full days of extreme torrential rain battering
most of Taiwan, there was no sign of a letup by Sunday night, with the Central Weather Bureau warning that 19 cities and counties could still fall victim to excessive rainfall.
While the three counties on the east coast, Yilan, Hualien and Taitung, were not included in the latest alert, that did not mean that those areas would be dry, forecasters said.
Residents should be on their guard against sudden precipitation, lightning, strong gusts of wind and flooding, the weather bureau said. Landslides and rockslides remained a possibility, according to the latest warnings. [FULL STORY]
