[Typhoon In-fa] Evacuation Order in Place for Riverside Facilities

Cranes removing temporary restrooms at riverside parkAs Typhoon In-fa inches towards northern Taiwan, the city government instructed affiliated agencies to commence typhoon preparation procedures. The removal and evacuation of 10 wharf ramp bridges, 7 pontoon wharfs, and 87 temporary restrooms began at 8 AM on July 21.
 
The Hydraulic Engineering Office (HEO) pointed out that in compliance with the Regulations on River Management, all movable containers, temporary restrooms, construction machines, and vehicles along riverbanks should be relocated to areas beyond the levees for flood prevention purposes.
 
Due to the large-scale dismantling operations, contractors need to deploy cranes, construction vehicles and related machinery. Passersby should stay away from the work areas for their own safety.
 
In addition, HEO will be dispatching equipment such as portable pumps and emergency power generators to various destinations across Taipei City starting 8 AM on July 22. These include locations at lower elevation and places with high flooding risk, ensuring that the devices are in place to respond to heavy downpours if necessary.
 
The HEO reminds the public that the city government may implement “Exit only” policy for parking facilities located outside the levees depending on the weather. Car owners who park their vehicles at these locations should keep up with the latest information and remove their vehicles when city hall orders the closing of evacuation gates.
