Looking away from Alabama for weather...

There has not been a lot going on in the weather department lately in Alabama during the first week of August, so we will visit Taiwan.

Stu Ostro posted an amazing video of water runoff resulting from the tremendous rains spawned by Typhoon Morakot in ChiaYi, Taiwan. Here is a radar loop of the storm that he also linked.

The person who posted the video said the storm produced "over a meter of rain on my location, with over 2m in the mountains (and counting!). The dam on the south side of the city is overtopped and incredibly violent. A massive hydraulic jump is visible."
