Toppled Tree Takes Out Two Parked Cars|大雨造成土質鬆動 台南路樹倒塌壓垮汽車
Floods were reported across southern Taiwan on May 27. In Tainan's South District, torrential rain overnight caused a 30-plus year-old tree to topple and damage two cars parked by the roadside. In Pingtung, rivers overflowed and flooded nearby homes. The Central Weather Bureau says western and southern Taiwan should be prepared for torrential rain on the 27th.
This sedan and the taxicab parked in front of it were damaged by a fallen tree. Of course, the owners were upset.
I parked on the other side yesterday in a police parking space. I thought they are using it so I should move to the other side. I couldn't have imagined (a tree) would fall on my car and damage the roof and doors.
Rainy season brought heavy rain to the south on the 26th. At 6 a.m. on the 27th, torrential rain felled a 30-year-old sacred fig tree in Tainan's South District. The tree damaged a utility pole on its way down before crashing down on the two cars. The Public Works Bureau sent a tow truck to the scene.
In Pingtung, a river overflowed and flooded streets and homes, with water levels reaching calf-high. The water did not recede for some time.
I went over there looking for you. It was flooded over there too. Everyone can see the water level is calf-high.
The Central Weather Bureau says because of the southward-moving front, western and southern Taiwan should be on high alert for torrential rain on the 27th. Pingtung in particular could see "extremely heavy rain."
The front is moving south today, so rain will be heaviest today especially in the western half of Taiwan.
The bureau says weather conditions will start improving on the 30th. Until then, central and southern Taiwan will be seeing afternoon thunderstorms and brief showers at other times of day.
