Larger Banner Blown Down by Strong Winds Hitting a Car 連日豪雨 高雄多處馬路現坑洞車輛爆胎

Strong winds pull this three-story-tall advertising banner off a building. As it falls, it hits a moving car below. The weather in Kaohsiung has been extremely unstable in recent days, with Category 10 winds reported in Maolin and Category 6-8 winds reported downtown on the morning of Aug. 6.

Citizen:"Yes, yes, yes, yes. (Your moped) shakes when you're riding it."

Citizen:"We might have to start preparing for a typhoon soon."

It has also been pouring rain for days. On Aug. 5, a 1-meter section of a road in Fengshan collapsed. The following morning, a hole was found on Yixin Second Road. One minor vehicular accident caused by the hole was reported, but fortunately, no one was hurt.

Local Resident vs. Car Owner:"There's a hole over there. We were trying to let you know to seal off the area around it. We couldn't do it because you were driving too fast. I just heard the sound of falling rocks."

Residents say the poor quality of local roads damages their vehicles and they are thinking about suing for state compensation.

Over in Chiayi, a container ship operating between Budai and Penghu became stranded at Budai Harbor on the afternoon of Aug. 5. The ship was caught between huge waves and tetrapods all night long and is in danger of sinking.

Chang Chin-tun, Director, Budai District Office, TIPC:"There are 28 containers (on the ship) carrying supplies between Budai and Makung. It currently has 13 kiloliters of fuel and 1,600 liters of lubricating oil."

Due to poor sea conditions, the only thing the coast guard could do was set up oil barriers to prevent any leaked oil from spreading to a larger area.

 

 

 

強風吹來,這面三樓高的廣告布幕砸轉彎的車子,車主閃不及只得輾過,現場一度混亂,高雄這兩天氣候不穩,5號測到8級風,6號上午十點前,測得最強風在茂林,有10級風,市區也有6-8級陣風。

民眾表示:「會,會,會,會,(騎車)會搖晃,會搖晃。」

民眾表示:「可能等一下,就要準備颱風了吧!」

不只強風,馬路也有狀況,5號下午鳳山一處民宅前,出現超過一米長的塌陷坑洞;6號凌晨,一心二路同樣也出現坑洞,有車輛不慎輾過後爆胎,幸好沒有造成人員傷害。

鄰近居民 vs. 車主表示:「那邊有一個洞,我們要喊你,對呀,要喊你,要把你攔下來,對呀!開太快,我們不敢攔,我聽到砰砰一聲。」

民眾表示,這樣的施工品質毀損車輛,不排除提出國賠。而在嘉義縣海岸,有1艘往返布袋與澎湖的貨輪,5號下午,疑似因風浪過大,擱淺在布袋商港,經過一夜海浪衝擊又撞擊消波塊,船身幾乎要沉沒,狀況危急。

台灣港務布袋管理處處長 張錦墩表示:「(船上有)28個貨櫃,那裡面裝什麼東西?應該都是一些散雜貨,屬於跟我們布袋、馬公一些補給品,那它目前的燃油有13公秉,那它滑油有1600公升。」

上午海象惡劣,無法拖離貨輪,目前先放攔油索,避免漏油造成汙染,也將密切監控,待天氣穩定,馬上展開救援。
