Torrential Rain Causing Widespread Damage in S. Taiwan|中部豪雨 苗栗苑裡.南投仁愛均見土石流

There are many floods across southern and central Taiwan following continuous days of torrential rain. One Nanshi Borough residence in Miaoli's Yuanli was assaulted by landslides and rockslides, while a fallen tree damaged the roof of another home. Over in Wanfeng Village in Nantou's Renai Township and Nantou County Highway 83, workers had only just finished clearing away debris from a landslide when further torrential rain caused another 300-meter-long landslide on the evening of Aug. 20. In the mountainous area of Taichung's Dakeng, the lives of over 100 dogs at a shelter were threatened by the collapse of a slope. A factory in Changhua's Huatan suffered damage after continuous days of torrential rain caused the collapse of a retaining wall. The factory suffered machinery and equipment damage.

Following days of torrential rain, mud and rocks flood this home in Miaoli's Yuanli.

This is where the landslide started. It flowed down from the right side of the drainage ditch on the slope of the mountain.

Fortunately, the residents had evacuated already. With the damage, however, it will be some time before they can move back in.

The heavy rain pushed it down. The rainwater is saturated water and therefore more likely to cause landslides and rockslides.

Over in Nantou's Wanfeng Village and along Nantou County Highway 83, county workers had only just finished clearing away debris when another landslide took place on the evening of the 21st. Traffic flow was again cut off, trapping one car.

It was already too late for me to back up. After a while, we couldn't open it anymore. I thought I would be buried alive. After the village chief and village residents rushed over and broke the window, I was able to climb out.

There was torrential rain at 5 o'clock (on the 20th) that covered the road surface in debris all over again. This is now the fifth day and we are still working to restore the road.

In the mountainous part of Taichung's Dakeng, a huge landslide caused the collapse of a dog shelter. With food and other supplies swept away and the shelter also sustaining structural damage, the owner is extremely worried.

Soil and rocks kept coming down. Another area collapsed yesterday. I have asked someone to come help (with repairs).

Over in Changhua's Huatan, a leather embossing factory on Changyuan Road Section 1 also suffered structural damage following flooding and the recent earthquake. With the factory's 7-meter retaining wall collapsing, there was major equipment damage and one side of the building is sinking. Gaps have been covered with tarps for the time being but there is nothing more that can be done until the weather stabilizes.

大雨造成土石泥流,這裡是苗栗苑裡南勢里,沖刷進民宅的泥沙土石,源頭就是這裡。

「這就是土石流的起點,右側的山坡水溝流下來」

屋裡一片混亂,居民已經先撤離,但暫時已經不能住人。

苗栗苑裡南勢里長 張維廷表示:「下大雨推下來,雨水都含飽水,所以比較會土石滑落。」

而在南投萬豐村及投83線,連日大雨,縣府派員搶通,好不容易才清乾淨放行,卻在21號傍晚的一場豪雨,再度讓道路中斷,一台自車客車一度受困。

受困車主 徐紹偉表示:「我要後退,已經來不及了,結果一下子,我門就打不開了,我想說會被埋走了啦!結果那個村長趕快跟村民來,把窗戶敲破,我才爬出來。」

南投縣仁愛鄉長 吳文忠表示:「(20日)五點多的時候,下了一起豪雨,那導致整個路面全部又淤積,到現在為止,第五天了,還在繼續搶修。」

在台中大坑山區,收容上百隻流浪狗的"莊媽媽狗園",19號也發生大規模土石流,狗園一半面積塌陷,狗飼料被沖毀,收容區域的鐵皮屋也有危險,狗園主人十分擔心。

狗園主人 莊雪玉表示:「沙石都一直流失、流失,還有昨天有一區又要坍方了,我又請人再幫忙(搶救)。」

另外在彰化花壇彰員路1段上一間皮革壓花工廠,大雨加上地震,16號時已出現龜裂,隔天遙不敵大雨水淹工廠,造成7公尺擋土牆崩場,廠內機器受損,連日豪雨讓工廠邊坡持續塌陷,緊臨塌陷邊坡,目前已先用帆布覆蓋,等天氣穩定,才能評估後續。
