Landslide in Nantou kills two, injures oneBy Shelley Shan / Staff reporter

Two men died and one woman was injured in a mudslide in the Lushan (廬山) Hot Spring Zone in Nantou County after the area was hit by torrential rains over the weekend.
Chen Yung-hsiang (陳永祥), 74, died in the mudslide, while his wife Chen Chan A-yuan (陳詹阿元), 69, sustained injuries.
The couple, who owned a pear farm in the village, and another man took refuge in a shack from the torrential rain. The identity of the other victim, a male worker, was not made public.
Rescuers from the Renai Fire Department of Nantou County managed to save Chen’s wife. Fearing that the torrential rain could trigger more mudslides, the Nantou County Government began evacuating tourists, hoteliers and residents in Lushan on Sunday. However, the evacuation was disrupted by a mudslide on the Nanfong (南豐) section on Highway 14.
About 40 tour buses carrying tourists were stuck in traffic for nearly 13 hours before they left the mountain early yesterday morning.
Meanwhile, rescuers from the Greater Taichung Fire Department saved five construction workers of the Third River Management Office of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, who were trapped in a shoal because of the surging water in the Da-an River (大安溪).
About 2,000 people were trapped in mountainous areas of Greater Kaohsiung after several roads and bridges were blocked because of the flooding, with the most affected areas being Namasiya (那瑪夏) and Taoyuan (桃源) districts. Local authorities said most of the people who were trapped have been relocated to shelters.
More than 300 troops have been dispatched to Greater Kaohsiung’s Jiasian (甲仙) and Liouguei (六龜) districts to help evacuate residents and assist with relief work.
Torrential rain brought by a frontal system and the southwest monsoon continued to pummel central and southern Taiwan yesterday. The Directorate General of Highways said that road damage was found on highways 8, 14, 21, 24 and 28, affecting residents in Greater Taichung, Nantou, Greater Kaohsiung and Pingtung.
Because of safety concerns, the agency also launched preventive closures of road sections on highways 14, 18, 20, 21, 24, 27 and 88, as well as county highways 149 and 169.
The Alishan Forest Recreation Park in Chiayi County and the Aowanda Forest Recreation Park in Nantou were both closed yesterday.
The Council of Agriculture also said that heavy rain had inflicted nationwide agricultural losses of NT$28.2 million (US$943,000) as of 4pm yesterday, with damage reported in Nantou, Pingtung, Chiayi, Greater Kaohsiung, Greater Tainan, Yunlin and Taitung.
Statistics from the Central Weather Bureau showed accumulations in Sandimen Township’s (三地門) Shangdewen (上德文), Pingtung County, from Saturday through yesterday had reached 1,150mm, the highest level nationwide.
For today, the bureau has issued torrential rain alerts to residents in Greater Taichung, Nantou, Chiayi, Greater Kaohsiung and Pingtung.
Those in Miaoli, Changhua, Yunlin and Greater Tainan must also be alert to the dangers brought by torrential rains, the bureau said.
Because of a frontal system, heavy rains would occur on the northern and northeastern regions today as well, the bureau said.
The bureau added that the rain in central and southern Taiwan would not ease until Thursday, when the southwest monsoon is expected to weaken.
In related news, a tropical depression had formed near Guam yesterday morning, which could potentially turn into a tropical storm. The bureau said the tropical depression was off the south coast of Guam and was moving slowly in the northwesterly direction.

'Rain bomb' causes flooding in parts of northern Taiwan

Source: http://focustaiwan.tw/news/afav/201706020005.aspx

2017/06/02 10:31:39



Taipei, June 2 (CNA) Parts of the northern city of New Taipei were flooded Friday as a hovering front and southwesterly airstream dumped heavy rain across Taiwan.

As of 8:30 a.m. Friday, flooding had been reported in 43 locations in the city's Danshui, Sanzhi, Shimen, Jinshan and Wanli districts, the city government said.

Some schools in Shimen, Jinshan, Wanli and Sanzhi districts have also been closed, it said.

The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) warned Friday that the moist weather system will bring downpours all over Taiwan, with torrential rain or extremely torrential rain likely on the northern coast.

Torrential rain is defined as accumulated rainfall of 350 mm or more within 24 hours, while extremely torrential rain means accumulated rainfall of 500 mm or more over a 24-hour period.

As of 8:10 a.m. Friday, the accumulated precipitation in districts of New Taipei was 444 mm in Shimen, 428 mm in Sanzhi, 372 mm in Jinshan and 281 mm in Wanli, according to CWB data.

Also on Friday, the Water Resources Agency (WRA) said that in addition to the New Taipei areas that had already flooded, parts of Keelung, namely Zhongshan, Jenai and Xinyi districts, were on a Level 1 food alert.

Zhongzheng, Anle and Nuannuan districts in Keelung, meanwhile, were on a Level 2 flood alert, the agency said.

A Level 1 alert means flooding is imminent if rain continues, while a Level 2 alert means that flooding is possible within three hours if rain continues.

Nuclear reactor trips as electric pylon falls during rain

Source: http://focustaiwan.tw/news/asoc/201706020012.aspx

2017/06/02 14:21:40

Taipei, May 2 (CNA) A reactor at the No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant in New Taipei tripped out on Friday, after a power transmission pylon on a nearby hilltop toppled during torrential rain, Taiwan Power Co. (Taipower) said.

The second nuclear reactor at the power plant automatically shut down as its safety mechanism was activated, the state-run company said, adding that neither the reactor nor the generator was damaged.

The reactor was running at 75 percent capacity when the incident occurred and had been scheduled to remain at that level until June 10 or 11, when the fuel is due to run out, Taipower said.

At that time, the reactor would be shut down for annual maintenance, the company said.

With the reactor now down, only one of six reactors at Taiwan's three functional nuclear power plants is in operation, according to Taipower.

Since early Friday, hundreds of millimeters of rain has fallen in New Taipei and Keelung as a weather front and southwesterly airstream moved over Taiwan from the north, according to the Central Weather Bureau.

Taoyuan Airport terminal area was flooded again

【影】豪雨灌!桃園機場淹水再變「水上」機場 國外旅客:以為來到落後國家

source: http://bepo.ctitv.com.tw/2017/06/224535/

超大豪雨灌北台,國家大門桃園機場繼去年大淹之後,昨天上午又再度淹成了「水上機場」,而且時間點相當巧,隔了整整一年。從一航廈的入口到二航廈禮品街,不是滴水、就是淹水。國外旅客看了傻眼,直說「感覺像來到落後國家」,但交通部長賀陳旦明明去年才保證說「不會再淹」。這次他到機場視察時,卻取巧的說這回「不是淹水是漏水」。
