Toppled Tree Takes Out Two Parked Cars|大雨造成土質鬆動 台南路樹倒塌壓垮汽車

Floods were reported across southern Taiwan on May 27. In Tainan's South District, torrential rain overnight caused a 30-plus year-old tree to topple and damage two cars parked by the roadside. In Pingtung, rivers overflowed and flooded nearby homes. The Central Weather Bureau says western and southern Taiwan should be prepared for torrential rain on the 27th.

This sedan and the taxicab parked in front of it were damaged by a fallen tree. Of course, the owners were upset.

I parked on the other side yesterday in a police parking space. I thought they are using it so I should move to the other side. I couldn't have imagined (a tree) would fall on my car and damage the roof and doors.

Rainy season brought heavy rain to the south on the 26th. At 6 a.m. on the 27th, torrential rain felled a 30-year-old sacred fig tree in Tainan's South District. The tree damaged a utility pole on its way down before crashing down on the two cars. The Public Works Bureau sent a tow truck to the scene.

In Pingtung, a river overflowed and flooded streets and homes, with water levels reaching calf-high. The water did not recede for some time.

I went over there looking for you. It was flooded over there too. Everyone can see the water level is calf-high.

The Central Weather Bureau says because of the southward-moving front, western and southern Taiwan should be on high alert for torrential rain on the 27th. Pingtung in particular could see "extremely heavy rain."

The front is moving south today, so rain will be heaviest today especially in the western half of Taiwan.

The bureau says weather conditions will start improving on the 30th. Until then, central and southern Taiwan will be seeing afternoon thunderstorms and brief showers at other times of day.

銀色轎車板金多處凹陷,車窗整片裂開、碎片散落一地,而前方的計程車,後車窗也裂出好大一個洞,兩台車車身,都是樹枝和木屑,車主得知消息,好無奈。

受害車主表示:「我昨天是停在另外一邊,停在警備車車格,我想說,他們在用,就把它移來這兒,沒想到(樹)都倒下來,車頂、旁邊的車門都壞了。」

受到梅雨鋒面影響,南部地區26號晚間迎來大雨,台南南區27號清晨6點多,豪雨侵襲造成土地鬆動,超過30年的菩提樹突然倒塌,先是拉扯到電線,導致電線桿斷裂,之後再壓毀路邊停放的兩輛汽車,警方到場疏導交通,工務局也隨即出動吊臂車救援。

不只台南,屏東出現也災情,一波強降雨,造成溪水高漲、道路也大範圍積水、甚至住家裡頭,水還淹到小腿肚,遲遲無法消退。

民眾:「我去你那邊找你,你那邊也淹水了,大家可以看到,都淹水都快淹到膝蓋了。」

氣象局表示,因為鋒面逐漸南下,雨勢明顯,特別是西半部地區,更針對南、高、屏發布豪雨特報,在屏東甚至可能出現大豪雨等級的降雨。

氣象局預報員 徐仲毅表示:「今天來說,是一個鋒面逐漸南下的過程,所以雨勢上來講,今天是最明顯的,特別是西半部地區,雨勢更是明顯。」

氣象局預估,雨勢到週六會逐漸趨緩,轉成西南風影響的天氣型態,不過,中南部地區因為屬於迎風面,除了會有午後雷陣雨外,其他時間也還是可能出現短暫陣雨或雷雨。
