WHAT IS LUOSHANFENG?

The Luoshanfeng is the common name for the northeast monsoon in Taiwan's Hengchun Peninsula. In detail, the Luoshanfeng is a type of downslope wind. The central mountain range in the Hengchun Peninsula decreases in height to around 400-1000 meters. From October to April of the following year, the northeast monsoon descends over the mountains and the strong downslope wind directly hits the western coast of the Hengchun Peninsula, affecting areas are included Checheng, Mudan, and Hengchun. The instantaneous strength of the Luoshanfeng can reach to level 6 or 7, which is equivalent to the power of a mild typhoon. It has been records of motorcycles and cars being blown over, resulting in casualties. It has also caused yellow sand to rise from the Jiupeng Desert and the Haikou Desert.
