• Floods hit blast-ravaged Taiwan city


    TAIPEI: Torrential rains on Monday forced the Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung to shut schools and offices, as floods overwhelmed its sewage system which was severely damaged by gas explosions last month that killed 30 people and injured 300. Residents rushed to pile up sandbags in the two districts where drainage systems were affected by the blasts but many were marooned by the rising waters. At least 180 millimeters of rain fell on Monday morning following weekend downpours.
