Southern Taiwan Receives 300 mm of Rain in 24 Hours|高屏24小時雨量逾300毫米 災情頻傳

Persistent rain brought by southwestern flow led to severe flooding in Kaohsiung and Pingtung County, as the two regions received over 300 millimeters of rain in 24 hours. Roads in Kaohsiung's Dashu, Renwu, and Niaosong and Pingtung's Yanpu were submerged, affecting traffic. There was also falling rocks and mudslides in Wutai and Chunri.

Pouring rain turned Alley 86 of Kaohsiung's Fengren Road into a river on the morning of the 22nd, disrupting traffic and threatening stores.

The water is so deep it makes driving (a moped) difficult.

(In the past), the water level would only hit about up to here with this kind of rain. Since last year, the water level started reaching up to here.

The water eventually reached National Freeway 10, causing rush hour congestion. On Zuoyin's Liantan Road, water from drainage ditches overflowed onto the road.

With flooding in Zuoying, Renwu, Niaosong, and Dashu, police had to close several roads. In Pingtung, floodwaters also forced the closure of roads around Tajen University.

There are contractors working on it upstream. There's just too much debris from up there that's flowing down our way.

Pingtung's Chunri Township received over 400 millimeters of rain in a 24-hour span, resulting in mudfalls in Lili Village and falling rocks in Wutai Township. Pingtung's glass suspension bridge, Chuhuo Special Scenic Area, and Sichongxi Hot Springs Park were all closed for the day.

大雨滂沱,高雄仁武區鳳仁路86巷一早8點就因為大排溢流,變成小溪,漫流到鳳仁路,影響車輛通行,也差點淹進店家。

機車騎士表示:「(騎車)有一點會晃,因為太深了水。」

附近店家表示:「(以前)下這種雨的話,到這裡,現在從去年開始,就到差不多最大雨,就到這裡而已。」

水一路淹到國道十號底下,造成當地從上班時間就交通大打結。在左營區蓮潭路,也因為雨勢過大,水從排水溝溢流路面。

警方連忙拉起封鎖線,禁止通行,高雄包括左營、仁武、鳥松、大樹,都有道路積淹水的情況。在屏東,大仁科技大學旁的道路也被封閉,因為路成了湍急溪流,不斷往省道台27線灌。

屏東縣新二村長 鄭蔡金純表示:「現在這個部分是大仁東街,這(上游)都有包商,有在施工,現在上面阻塞物太多流下來。」

屏東春日鄉24小時累積雨量更突破400毫米,力里村出現泥流瀑布,霧台鄉也有零星落石,屏東縣政府宣布琉璃吊橋、出火風景區、四重溪溫泉公園停止營運一天。
