Typhoon Morakot Continued....

Well, Taipei missed the really strong winds and heavy rainfall, but the rest of the country wasn't so lucky. We'll have more rains for the next two days or so, but nothing crazy. In the meantime southern Taiwan is starting the cleanup and recovery from landslides, collapsed bridges and overflown riverbanks. Several areas in southern Taiwan had record breaking rainfalls this weekend, with more than 55 inches in one day and more than 98 inches so far, and it isn't over yet.

I've been keeping up on the news on eTaiwan News website.

Luckily, Taiwan was well prepared for the typhoon so casualties have been relatively low.

Scary stuff!
