Fishermen Seek Shelter from Typhoon 南方澳漁船進港避風 富岡漁港加強防颱

Wind and waves started to intensify as typhoon approaches. Fishing boats at Yilan's Nanfangao Port went into the harbor to try to avoid the heavy winds. Also fishermen at Taitung's Fugang Port also began disaster prevention measures. In addition, ferry services between Taitung, Green Island and Orchid ialand will be suspended for three days starting Sept. 1.


Long waves appeared along the Northeast Coast, while the sky gradually became gray. The typhoon's presence can be gradually felt. Nanfangao Port was crowded with fishing boats taking shelter from the typhoon. Taitung's fishermen are also sheltering inside at Fugang, due to the gradual strengthening of wind and waves. Everyone worked together to tie down the boats to prevent damage from Typhoon Hinnamnor.

Mr. Wang, Fisherman: “The stronger the typhoon, the bigger the waves will be. We're making preparations right now while the waves are flat.”

Strengthening wind and waves have also affected marine traffic. Yilan's Guishan Island scenic area will be temporarily closed from Sept.1 to Sept. 3. Ferry services from Taitung to and from Green Island and Orchid Island have been suspended for 3 days starting on the afternoon of the 1st. Five ferry shifts departing on the morning of the 1st from Green Island to Taitung brought back about 1,500 tourists. Consequently, the ferry from Taitung to Green Island carried almost no passengers, but brought a lot of daily necessities back to Green Island.

Mr. Wu, Ferry Crew: “We have to ship daily necessities over today. Are there any tourists heading over? There shouldn't be any at the moment.”

Due to strengthening wind and waves, the freighter originally bound for Orchid Island on the 1st was also cancelled. People on the northeast and east coasts are reminded that it is best to suspend ocean activities to avoid danger. 

 

 

 

東北角海岸一早出現長浪,天空也漸漸變灰暗,已經慢慢感受到颱風外圍環流的影響。受到颱風影響,南方澳漁港擠滿了漁船,1日開始漁船都暫停出海作業,進港躲避風雨。在東部的富岡漁港,也由於海面風浪慢慢增強,漁民也把船開進內港,大家合力把船綁牢,防範軒嵐諾強颱帶來大風大浪,損壞漁船。

漁民王先生說:「颱風變強、勢必風浪那個浪會愈大,愈大趁現在浪平的時候,我們先防颱,先把它做好。」

風浪增強也影響海上交通,1日到3日宜蘭龜山島宣布封島三天,而台東往返綠島和蘭嶼的交通船,1日下午起也要停航3天。綠島回台東的客輪,上午開出5個船班、載回大約1千5百名遊客,開往綠島客輪幾乎沒有載客,反而載了許多民生物資回綠島。

客輪船員吳先生表示:「民生物資今天都要過去,客人目前應該是沒有啦。」

由於海面風浪持續增強當中,原本1日開往蘭嶼的貨輪也宣布取消。提醒在東北部和東部海岸活動的民眾,最好暫停海域活動,避免危險。
