Taitung on High Alert as Typhoon Danas Approaches|輕颱"丹娜絲"逼近 東部民眾嚴加戒備

Tropical Storm Danas is approaching the waters off of Taiwan's eastern coast and Orchid Island is already experiencing Category 10 winds and stronger waves as of this morning. Fishermen in Taitung County began typhoon prevention work in the morning while ferry operators operated eight ferries to transport over 2,000 tourists from Green Island back to Taitung.

Dark, ominous clouds hang over Orchid Island as waves swell.

Waves continuously assault the embankments along the coast of Taitung's Fugang. Green Island ferry operators ran eight ferries before noon to transport over 2,000 tourists back to Taitung. Some tourists cut their trips short due to Tropical Storm Danas, while others went ahead with their original itinerary.

(Were the waves really huge?) Pretty huge. I almost couldn't take it.

Passenger ferries began departing for Green Island at 6:30 this morning.

The day dawned bright and sunny in Taitung, but winds grew in strength throughout the morning. Fishermen spent the morning securing their boats even before the land warning was issued.

As it is also sugar apple harvest season in Taitung's Damu, farmers spent the morning doing everything they could to prevent damage to their crops.

We are trimming branches because we can't cover them with bags. All we can do is try to minimize the damage.

With wind force rising, flying sand has also become a problem in dry Taitung. The Taitung County Government's emergency response center has been activated and officials are calling on everyone to be on high alert.

上午蘭嶼外海風浪逐漸增強,天空也烏雲密佈,可以感受到丹娜絲颱風的威脅。

台東富岡海邊,大浪也不斷打上海堤。往返綠島的客輪,頂著風浪,中午前要開出往返各8個船班,預計載回2千多名遊客。不少遊客因為丹娜絲颱風來襲,提前結束行程,不過也還有遊客仍按照既定行程前往綠島。

遊客表示:「(海面上的浪會很大嗎?) 滿大的唷!我有一點快要撐不住了。」

岸巡富岡安檢所所長 鍾易昌表示:「今天早上6點半,陸續有客船前往綠島,輪運旅客。」

台東地區早上還是大太陽的好天氣,不過風力增強,富岡漁港漁民,趕在陸上颱風警報發布前,綁牢漁船。

現在又正好是台東大目釋迦成熟期,一大早農民也來到果園修枝防颱,避免枝條打傷果實。

農民 陳先生表示:「先修枝了,因為它沒有辦法套袋,所以我們就只能傷害降到最低。」

台東地區目前風力逐漸增強當口,由於天氣乾燥,到處風砂飛揚。台東縣政府災害應變中心,早上八點已完成開設,縣府呼籲民眾要趕緊做好防颱。
