Rain associated with Tropical Storm Mitag are currently affecting much of Taiwan. It looks like the storm has turned back out to sea after hitting The Philippines and won’t directly hit Taiwan. However, it is still dumping plenty of rain on the island. According to the Taipei Times, Nioudou (牛鬥) in Yilan County received 623mm of rain and rains have continued overnight and today.

  1. I’ve noticed the rain. It really has been non-stop.

    I wonder how that place got to be named 牛鬥. Cowfight? There’s gotta be a story behind that.

  2. I can tell you it is friggin cold now down here in the middle of Taiwan… I’m up to three layers now when riding the motor scooter!
