TAIPEI, TAIWAN - In Taiwan’s capital, Taipei, two pedestrians were injured in two different areas after a recent cold snap caused tiles to rain down off of buildings. So far, over 67 buildings have been shedding their tiles due to the sudden temperature change from warm to cold. Many of the tiles plastered to buildings are only an exterior facade. The sudden temperature changes caused the metal or plaster of the building to shrink and expand at different rates to the cement holding the tile to the surface. Construction crews with some assistance from the fire department have been working on removing and replacing old tile facades. But in the meantime, the government warns everyone to walk under the covered walkways and to watch out for falling tiles. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- For animated news, visit our channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/AppleDailyEnglish Subscribe to stay updated on all the top stories: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=AppleDailyEnglish
