Quick comment/shake until I almost start crying. The national alarm has not yet been sounded. What is the warning for forecast failure?

Taiwan: At approximately 7:58 a.m. this morning, Taiwan experienced an outbreak measuring 7.2 on the scale.EarthquakeThe epicenter was 25.0 kilometers south-southeast of Hualien County Government. It was the largest earthquake in 25 years since the 921 earthquake. The whole of Taiwan was greatly shaken. Several disasters occurred in various locations, but most did not receive national relief level warnings. Afterwards the shaking continued, shaking until I almost cried. Many people still did not receive the national warning. At the life-and-death moment of a major earthquake, there was no warning when warning was needed. National alert about what could happen?

A 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan this morning. 6 strong earthquakes hit Hualien County, 6 weak earthquakes hit Hualien City, 5 strong earthquakes hit Yilan County, 5 strong earthquakes hit Yilan City, 5 weak earthquakes hit New Taipei City Three Gorges, 5 weak earthquakes hit Taoyuan City 5 weak earthquakes occurred, and 5 weak earthquakes occurred in Taipei City. , The whole of Taiwan is shaking, shaking very strongly, and shaking for a long time. People in Yilan and Hualien, who are often woken up by earthquakes in the earthquake zone, instinctively feel that some kind of earthquake must be a disaster.

After this wave of earthquakes, many people became frightened, but they were surprised to find that they were abandoned by the country and did not receive national level warnings. Shortly afterwards, strong aftershocks occurred again. Some people received it, and some received it. People did not receive the tsunami warning. The tremor warnings kept coming and going, and finally after going to work in the company, the tremors came again. Many expressed regret that they were almost in tears, but they still did not receive a national warning.

The Meteorological Administration said national warnings would be issued for earthquakes with an estimated magnitude of 5 or greater and a seismic intensity of 4. However, there are sometimes differences between estimated and actual magnitudes and seismic intensity, possibly due to topographic effects or basin effects.

Given the scale and intensity of this earthquake, 12 counties and cities should have received warnings, including Yilan County, Hsinchu County, Miaoli County, Changhua County, Nantou County, Yunlin County, Chiayi County, Taitung County, Hualien County, Chiayi City. Are included. Taichung city,Tainan city. The Meteorological Administration acknowledged that some people received it, but some people did not. The detailed causes are still under investigation.

The government has invested huge amounts of money over the years to create an earthquake forecasting system, but it “failed” at critical moments. It was the largest earthquake in 25 years since the 921 earthquake. “The reason why some people did not receive national warnings is still under investigation. At a moment of life and death, this earthquake actually caused the alarm to go haywire.

Earlier this year, China had launched a satellite.Department of DefenseA national air defense alert was issued, and mobile phones across the country issued warnings. Chinese and English text messages from the Ministry of National Defense mistook the satellites for missiles, causing panic.

In response to the incident, Mainland China’s Taiwan Affairs Office said in written comments to Reuters that the satellite launch was a routine arrangement of the year and had nothing to do with it.taiwan election,

President Tsai understood the ins and outs of the incident and confirmed that the other side of the Taiwan Strait had no political intentions in this incident. She explained to the people through the spokesperson of the Presidential Office, “After a comprehensive analysis by the national security team After making an assessment in the context of all relevant information and information received from international friendly parties, we have come to a decision that political intentions can be ruled out.” At the time, even international astronomers had said That our side had overreacted.

Today’s big earthquake, many people who did not receive warning notices, actually forgot the false alarm, which mistook a satellite for a missile at the beginning of the year. At least the country has not forgotten it.
