Abstract
The typhoon Morakot struck Taiwan during August 8-10, 2009, and the government statistics analyzed that typhoon brought maximum 3,004mm in three days, and 21 rain stations is over 2,000mm. It claimed 673 casualties, 26 missing persons and 24,950 evacuees are evacuated by the Disaster Prevention and Response Act. The heavy and log period rainfall also triggered many debris flow and landslides, and the economic loss is 6.2billion USD. The watershed of Kaoping River suffered those huge damages from the Typhoon Morakot in 2009 and Typhoon Fanapi in 2010. This kind damage is extreme weather, and we think that climate change will bring huge impacts to nations all over the world.
