RESTORED SOUTH-LINK HIGHWAY FACES ANOTHER TYPHOON|土石流重創南迴 才剛搶通.颱風又來

Successive typhoons have caused multiple mudslides at several sections along the South-link highway. Now that traffic has finally been restored, another typhoon is coming. The Directorate-general of Highways says it will close off the entire highway once the force of the storm reaches a certain level. Meanwhile, we would like to remind you that all passenger boats to and from Green Island and Lanyu will be suspended tomorrow. Suffering from days of torrential rains, the mountain in Taitung County had been seriously damaged by several typhoons. The Mt. Doulan seemed like a human face hurt by mudslides. There is a long trace, which looks like a crying beautiful face. ==CHEN CHEN-HSIEN, Chu Lu Ranch Manager== There seemed to have mudslides occurred at the Mt. Doulan. The position of the mudslides was right at the eye of the Sleeping Beauty. ==TOURIST== Recently there are too many natural disasters, I feel like to shed some tears of sadness. The section between Daniao and Jinlun of the South-link Highway had resumed for traffics. The Directorate-general of Highways reminds all road users that if Typhoon Haima were to become more threatening, road sections may be blocked for safety. ==CHEN YUNG-CHAN, Dawu Section Chief, Dir.-general of Highways== We are repairing the section between Daniao and Jinlun. The geology is soft and road is broken. We will block the section when it is threatening. Typhoon Haima is heading closer to Taiwan from the southeast direction of the Pacific. The Central Weather Bureau will issue a sea warning. The ferry lines between Taitung and the Green Island will be suspended depends on the weather condition.
