Taiwan: Flooding rain to delay flights into next week

Rounds of rain will heighten flooding risk across Taiwan this week, AccuWeather says.

The combination of monsoon moisture and a slow-moving frontal boundary will result in several days of heavy rainfall across Taiwan.

Repeated rounds of heavy rainfall over similar areas will create a high risk for flooding and mudslides across the island with different areas being impacted the most on any given day.

Widespread travel delays are expected as downpours can quickly inundate roadways and result in flight delays or cancellations.
