Morakot came and went. In the 60 hours between 2009/08/07, 00:00 and 2009/08/09, 12:00, she dropped well over 2 meters of rain in several places in Jiayi, Gaoxiong, and Pingdong counties. Worst off was Weilaoshan (尾寮山) in Sandimen Township (三地門鄉), Pingdong County, with 2495.0 mm. Haven't seen any of the reports on all the landslides and flooding, but at least the area around Taimali on the southeast coast and parts of the southern link were completely flooded, apparently destroying several hundred meters of both highway 9 and the railway. With these huge amounts of rain, there must have been landslides blocking and destroying roads all over the place, so biking in the mountains may be difficult for a while.
