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.
