Abstract Taiwan is a relatively small island but with an extremely steep topography. On the east coast, the mountains rise straight out of the Ocean, but for three main coastal plains in Taitung, Hualien and Ilan (Fig. 1). In August 2009, the east coast and southern parts of Taiwan were severely affected by Typhoon Morakot, in particular some areas that the author visited a number of times between 1995 and 2008. The Typhoon Morakot was the deadliest typhoon that impacted Taiwan in recorded history. In December 2008, the author visited a number of affected areas, including the Taimali River mouth, theJihben River catchment, the Gaoping River bridge linking the Linyuan to Xinyuan townships at the boundary between the Kaohsiung and Pingtung counties, and several catchments in Pingtung County where the rivers flow into the Taiwan Strait. He shares his experience on several areas which were severely affected by the Typhoon Morakot.
