    Intense rains expected in south-central Taiwan through Sunday (2019/08/13)

    Heavy rains battered south-central Taiwan last night, with the worst of the downpours seen in Tainan. Work and classes were suspended in the city today due to flooding. Forecasters say to expect strong southwesterly winds and sporadic downpours in the area until Sunday.

    Here in Tainan, thunder rolled deep into the night. Torrential rains came in a cascade, leaving floodwater pooling in many parts of the region.

    At the Yunong Road culvert, rain water rose to half the height of car tires. Scooter riders were forced to step off and push.

    The lightning and downpours continued to 6 in the morning. Locals had a rude awakening as they opened their front door to a street covered in water.

    After flood updates arrived at the disaster response center, Tainan Mayor Huang Wei-che declared that work and classes were suspended for the day.

    Nature's rainfall has exceeded the man-made capacity of the storm drainage system. In six hours, there's been 240-250 millimeters of rain.

    The rains started to ease in the morning, allowing the floods to begin receding. Locals rushed to clear out the water from their homes. Chances are they'll have to do it again in the week ahead.

    Between night and day, Taiwan goes from having a land breeze to a sea breeze. So in the evening, we'll see the land breeze converge with the southwesterly winds to produce a convective cloud system. That system will follow the southwest coast. It will be ushered inland by southwesterly winds and bring short spells of intense rains. Going by the data available now, it doesn't look like the situation will change until Sunday.

    According to the Water Resources Agency's disaster prevention site, a flood advisory is in effect in 25 administrative districts in Yunlin, Tainan, and Kaohsiung.

    中南部變水世界! 短時強降雨恐持續到周日

    中南部豪雨狂炸整夜,造成雲林、台南、高雄等3縣市25個行政區陷入淹水警戒,其中又以台南最為嚴重,今天停班停課一天。氣象局警告西南季風仍強,一直到周日,中南部都要注意晚上到上午的強降雨。

    台南地區深夜雷聲隆隆閃電不斷,豪大雨也跟著傾盆而下,不少地區開始淹水。

    裕農路涵洞下,已經淹水半個輪胎高,機車騎士只好下車推車。

    閃電不斷,雷雨不停,這樣的情況,一直維持到早上六點,民眾站在水淹的家門前,一早就睡不著覺了。

    積淹水災情就陸續傳入災害應變中心,也讓台南市長黃偉哲決定,全市停班停課一天。

    "天然的雨量已經超出了,人為的水利設施的防救的範圍,六個小時就已經下了240、 250毫米了"

    上午隨著雨勢趨緩,積淹水也逐漸退去,民眾開始忙著掃除積水,不過這種苦日子還沒到頭。

    [[氣象局技正 王君賢]]
    "從晚上到上午這一段時間,台灣地區會從陸風轉變為海風的狀況,因此在晚上這一段時間,陸風跟西南風輻合,造成對流雲系發展,這些發展會在西南部沿海,順著西南風移進到陸地上來,因此會造成短時強降雨,以現在來看到週日都沒有改變"

    根據水利署防災資訊網,今天的雨勢已造成雲林、台南、高雄等3縣市25個行政區陷入淹水警戒。
