Categories: East Asia, Taiwan (ROC), Disaster, Environment, Film

After almost one year since typhoon Morokot [1], Tsengwen Reservoir is still seriously blocked by driftwood and silt. Citizen journalist Sadapeopo documented the situation in a video report, interviewed the boss of local yacht-tour company and several travelers when visiting the dam, and gave his own observation [2](zht). “Two-thirds of the wood and mud flushed from the mountains during typhoon Morokot is still at the bank. If we don't preserve the mountains, this reservoir will never recover”, said the boss in the video.
