Typhoon Mitag Brings Strong Wind, Rain to Offshore Islands|"米塔"直撲綠島.蘭嶼 清晨起刮逾11級強陣風

Typhoon Mitag hit Taiwan's offshore Green Island and Lanyu Township on the morning of Sept. 30, bringing strong winds and heavy rain on both of the islands. The Taitung County government originally announced a work and school suspension only for Green Island and Lanyu. However, as the wind continues to intensity, the county government has decided to allow the heads of township and village in Taitung to decide on their own.

Large waves up to five meters in height were observed by the Central Weather Bureau off the coast of Taitung County. As the wind intensified, the waves hit the shore one after another and water broke embankments and flooded into the Fugang Harbor. Meanwhile, fishermen were busy securing their vessels.

Green Island saw wind gusts of over 10 on the Beaufort scale by Monday morning. Many local shop owners rushed to close the doors. The wind in Lanyu Township is even stronger, reaching level 13 in the morning. Both areas had announced a work and school suspension on September 30.

The wind got stronger and stronger throughout the day. But so far, it's still okay and we've been keeping an eye on the situation.

As Typhoon Mitag approached the waters east of Taiwan, the intensity of the wind off Taiwan's east coast reached level 10 of the Beaufort scale. The Taitung County government authorized all townships in the county to decide on their own whether school and work should be suspended. Three local townships, including Changbin, Donghe and Chenggong Township have announced that all schools and work is suspended after 10 am. However, the announcement came a little bit too late for some parents.

It's really troublesome, see how strong the wind is.

(The announcement) came too late, it's really windy and rainy right now.

After all, we have to fall in line with the central government. And we also need to make our decisions based the data on how strong the wind and rain is from the Central Weather Bureau.

Taitung County saw interval rains, strong winds, as well as strong waves along the coast. The officials of the Coast Guard Administration has called on the public not to stay near the coast on a typhoon day.

清晨氣象局觀測到台東外海已掀起5.4公尺的大浪,海浪一波波打上海岸,風浪逐漸增強,大浪還越過富岡漁港防波堤,打進港內,漁民也趕緊再到碼頭把漁船綁牢。

綠島地區從凌晨到今天白天,陣風超過10級,一大早商店趕緊收招牌防颱。而蘭嶼地區風力更強,清晨就刮起13級強陣風。綠島和蘭嶼30號全天停班停課。

蘭嶼鄉公所民政課長 施森茂表示:「白天風力愈來愈強,但是還好目前的狀況都是,我們隨時都在注意當中。」

由於米塔颱風接近東部外海,上午八點多,東海岸風力陣風達到十級,台東縣政府授權各鄉鎮自行決定要不要上班上課,包括長濱鄉、成功鎮和東河鄉,三個鄉自行宣布從早上10點過後,停班停課,但家長才剛把小孩送上學,又要再接回家,很困擾。

家長表示:「很麻煩啊,你看風那麼大。」

家長表示:「真的太慢了,風雨現在又大。」

台東縣政府秘書長 陳明仁表示:「再怎麼說都要依據中央的標準,而且我們還要依據中央氣象局的相關風力跟雨量的資料,來做最後的決定。」

台東地區仍有間歇性風雨,海面上強勁風浪還是一波波打上岸邊,海巡官兵再加強海岸巡邏,呼籲民眾颱風期不要到海邊活動。
