Taiwan gets hit with Flooding and Earthquakes

Photo from China Post

After getting hit with a 6.5 earthquake (which I didn't feel), the rain began pouring down the past 3 days. The mountains have very soft soil creating many landslides, destroying roads in the mountains, and stranding over 1,000 people. There has also been a lot of flooding from the 400 millimeters of rain. The area I am in has not been effected by either the earthquake or flooding. But you can pray for those that have been.
