That was wrong. Stopped for a few hours and then resumed normal transmission.
Thankfully, it's just short of severely destructive rain - for the most part it hasn't gone higher than 30-50 mil an hour (80 + per hour is when it gets real hairy) - but my God there's been a lot of it.
However, we are just one torrential burst away from serious trouble.
Meanwhile, 1000 mil up in the north since yesterday in Gongliao District New Taipei - that is likely to cause landslides - while Wanli and Toucheng are also getting hammered.
Below is the graph that's causing all the problems. The tail of a stalled typhoon feeding into the north east monsoon coldfont - which is bascially the 'perfect storm' type scenario.
Frighteningly, there is another potential typhoon lurking off the east coast of the Philippines that could affect us later in the week!
