Morakot victimsNatalie Tso | August 12, 2009
The devastation Morakot brought is hard to put in words, so perhaps a feel pictures can tell part of the story. Pictured above is Miu Rong-Tang, a village chief in the Kouhu township of Yunlin County. He lost his life trying to save his village from further damage from the rushing water. He slipped and fell into the torrent while opening a water gate. His wife tried to save him, fell into the water herself, but he pushed her to safety before he took his last breath.
