Reporter : Should Taiwan not have been more prepared for, for this weather that was coming?
Ma : No. This area, this is the first time in many years. That is why they aren’t, they were not fully prepared. If they were, they should have been evacuated much earlier. Just because they stayed in where they lived. And, but you see, they didn’t realize how serious the, ah, disaster was.
馬 : 不是的。在這個地區，這是好多年以來的第一次。這是為什麼他們沒有完全準備好。如果他們有準備好的話，他們應該更早就被撤離，正因為他們留在他們住的地方，而且，你看，但是他們沒有想到這災難會有多嚴重。
