Consecutive days of torrential rain also caused a major landslide in the Pingtung County township of Laiyi. After the main disaster struck midday Sunday, today rocks and other debris continued to scatter down the mountainside.
Witnesses who captured footage were excited. Fortunately, no homes were located in the path of the debris and nobody was hurt. This same mountain was the site of landslides during Typhoon Morakot in 2009 and torrential rain and flooding the following year.
