Floodwaters in Kaohsiung Tuesday

Floodwaters in Kaohsiung Tuesday[/caption] A passing front has brought heavy rain and flooding to the southern city of Kaohsiung. Meteorologists say even more rain may be on the way.

A Tuesday morning downpour clogged storm drains in parts of Kaohsiung, and the spillover left some roads underwater.

The road running past the entrance of the city’s Shu-Te University was left impassable. Scooter riders had no choice but to get off their scooters and slosh their way forward through the floodwaters.

In wasn’t just the roads, either: rising waters seeped into the ground floor of at least one building in the city’s Gangshan District, eventually reaching ankle height.
