Road Collapsed and Land Slided. Resident Worry Integrity of Wujie Dam. 仁愛鄉山崩路斷 居民憂心武界壩安全

A major landslide was reported in Fazhi Village in Nantou, cutting off an access road local residents rely on. Meanwhile, there are concerns over the integrity of Wujie Dam as a landslide took place nearby. 


Fazhi Village residents are on their way home when they find the road leading to their village has collapsed.

Local Resident: “Rocks are falling. It's dangerous. (It's falling down from above.) Yes, from above. Be careful. Be careful.”

Rocks fell suddenly but fortunately, the resident filming the video ran away quickly. Torrential rain began pouring down on Nantou's mountainous areas on Aug. 7, leading to the collapse of County Highway 83 around the 25K marker. Without the highway, residents of Wanfeng and Wujie have no way of leaving their village.

Local Resident:”It's been sealed off. (Sealed off.) (How far away is Wushe?) Really far.”

With the rain showing no signs of letting up and landslide debris covering road surfaces, roads are in danger of collapsing. The area is also close to Wujie Dam, leading to concerns about not only water quality but structural integrity. The county government says it will be difficult to reinforce the dam before the situation stabilizes.

Chen Hsi-wu, Director, Nantou County Public Works Office: ” (The collapsed area) is 150 meters long and 250 meters high. All the soil and debris ended up in the dam.” 
A major landslide and collapsed roads were also reported in Nantou's Dashi Village. Residents fear even worse landslides ahead if the rain doesn't stop.
Local Resident:”Utility poles were blown down.”

Local Resident:” There was only a small crack before and it was leaning just a little. It needs to be repaired.”
 

Residents say they heard a huge noise on Aug. 7 and found close to 100 meters of the local harbor access road gone the following day. Until the road is fixed, residents have to take a 1-hour detour to get in and out of the village. The township office says it is working on getting the road fixed.

 

南投仁愛的法治村民,正準備回家,發現前方出現大規模崩塌。

當地居民:「在落石呀,危險呀!(上面掉下來了)掉下來了喔!小心,小心。

突然出現落石,所幸趕緊逃開保住一命,不過回家的路已經被阻斷。[OUT]7號開始南投山區下起豪大雨,南投的法治村,投83線25K處出現大規模崩坍,連結萬豐武界兩個部落的交通整個被阻斷,居民出入成了問題。

當地居民:「都封掉啦。(到霧社還要多遠?)很遠喔。」

由於山區雨勢不斷,土壤含水層高,整段道路都被土石淹沒,甚至路基也不見。而崩塌處也鄰近武界壩,水質和壩體安全都可能被影響。縣府表示目前地質還不穩定,要搶通很困難。

南投縣工務處長 陳錫梧:「(崩塌處)長有150公尺,高有250公尺,土壤也都,跑到武界壩裡了。」

南投國姓的大石村,也出現大規模走山,一大段道路連路基都不見,土石掉進南港溪,這樣的景象讓民眾很害怕,就擔心接下來大雨持續,崩
塌還會擴大。

當地居民:「喔,電線桿都掉下去啦。」

當地居民:「之前只是一點點裂縫,一點點傾斜,都有補修。」

當地民眾說,7號晚間就聽到巨響,8號發現大石村的榮昌巷,對外的主要道路路基掏空近百公尺,當地居民得多花一小時繞道,才能對外聯繫。公所表示,將暫時先搶通便道,報請中央納入災害復建工程,減低對當地影響。
