Torrential Rains Wreaking Havoc in Kaohsiung|高雄大豪雨特報 85條土石流紅黃色警戒

The Central Weather Bureau has issued an Extremely Heavy Rain Advisory for Kaohsiung. It continues to rain in mountainous areas. There are as many as 85 red and yellow landslide and rockslide alerts across the city. The city government announced the cancellation of work and class in five districts including Namasia, Taoyuan, Liouguei, Maolin and Jiasian early in the morning. Taoyuan, Namasia and Liouguei received over 350 millimeters of rain in 24 hours, which caused many collapsed roads in mountainous areas. The road in front of one campsite was buried under a mudslide, cutting off traffic. Fortunately, there was only the campsite operator's family on site and no tourists were trapped there.

The road and drainage ditches are invisible under the torrent of muddy water. At one point, a car was literally floating down the road. Due to the continuous torrential rain in Kaohsiung's Liouguei, many mountainous roads are completely unusable.

This temple on Provincial Highway 28 is situated in a low-lying area and temple workers had to stop fighting a losing battle against the mud pouring in. One campsite in the mountains was also cut off from the outside world after the road in front of it was buried under a landslide. Fortunately, no tourists were there at the time. The operator's family, which was on site, is awaiting assistance.

The road was severed over there. After that, the Directorate-General of Highways wanted to elevate it. (Where did all this water come from?) From the mountains. The water has to pass this way. You can see the obstruction over there.

The Water Resources Bureau says Taoyuan received 490 millimeters of rain and Namasia 432 millimeters of rain in the 24 hours ending 7 a.m. on the 16th. There were 85 red and yellow landslide warnings in effect across the city and work and class were suspended in five districts, including Namasia, Taoyuan, Liouguei, Maolin and Jiasian.

It's the same. It's still the Provincial Highway 29 and Xi'anshan area. The torrential rain (on Aug. 15) caused some land and rockslides and falling rocks.

We have evacuated residents to a temporary shelter.

As of press time, 3,566 people have been evacuated across the city including 1,256 in Namasia. Residents will only be allowed to return home when the warnings have been lifted.

馬路被滾滾黃水吞噬,道路、排水溝在哪已經看不清,民眾開車經過,還因為水流湍急,車身一度漂浮,這是高雄六龜要往六龜市區的省道,當地大雨下不停,使得山區到處都是類似情況。

這間位在台28線上的廟宇,因為地勢較低,泥流不斷往廟裡灌,也讓廟方人員很無力,還有山區一處露營區,因土石流潛勢溪流的上游土石崩塌,排水道被堵住,水不停往露營區前方道路湧出,也讓當地交通被土石泥流中斷,目前露營區沒有遊客,只有業者一家人,正在等待大型機具幫忙開道。

露營區業者表示:「那邊斷了,斷了然後,公路局那個要把它弄高,要把它架高。(這些水都從哪裡來的?) 山上下來的,水就要從這裡過,你看這水,你看到那邊塞住了。」

水情中心統計,到16號早上7點為止,以24小時累計雨量計算,以桃源區已逼近490毫米,那瑪夏也有432毫米,全市有高達85條土石流紅黃色警戒,市府緊急再宣布那瑪夏、桃源、六龜、茂林、甲仙等5區16號再停班停課1天。

當地居民表示:「一樣喔還是台29線錫安山,道路這一塊,因為昨天下的豪雨,還是造成了,有一些土石,跟小石頭下來。」

那瑪夏區公所秘書 周曉鳳表示:「撤離我們的保全戶,對,那我們就是撤離到,我們的安置收容地點這樣。」

目前那瑪夏撤離1256人,如果加上六龜、桃源、甲仙,全市約撤離3566人,要等到警戒解除,才可能讓民眾回家。
