Flooding in Taichung, Taiwan - Typhoon Kalmaegi

Typhoon Kalmaegi hit Taiwan. To be more accurate, the tail end of this typhoon hit Taiwan and brought torrential rain to central and south Taiwan.

We are right in Taichung City, central Taiwan and not spared. When I woke up this morning, I could not see the road from the window. Since the TV and power were out at home, my hb went down to the apartment lobby hoping to get some feedback from the front desk.

But he could not. The lobby was flooded! The main road - Taichung Kang Road, just outside our block of apartments, was flooded.

This is another picture taken by hb's colleague (courtesy from D. Shu). He is staying somewhere along Wenxin Road, Taichung City.

Thank god, we got back electricity. Since we are "stranded" at home, need to survive on instant cup/bowl noodles for dinner. :(

Let's hope the rain subsides tomorrow and we can get out of the house. Our house is in the mess too since we are in the midst of packing/moving. This explains why we are surviving on instant noodles since I've already cleared my kitchen and fridge.
