Title: Typhoon Khanun Approaches: Japan Braces for Disruption as Evacuations Advised
In anticipation of Typhoon Khanun’s approach, Japan has been forced to cancel hundreds of flights and provide evacuation advisory to over 60,000 households. With the typhoon projected to reach South Korea’s southern coast by Thursday, the entire region is on high alert.
As the tropical cyclone makes its way towards Japan, authorities are warning of thunderstorms accompanied by heavy rain and strong winds on the Kyushu and Shikoku islands. Even areas as far north as Osaka and Nagoya may feel the impact of this powerful storm. The slow movement of Typhoon Khanun raises concerns that total rainfall could far exceed the normal monthly average for August.
To ensure the safety of citizens, various modes of transportation have been shut down until further notice. Trains, flights, and ferries in the affected areas will remain suspended for the next couple of days, causing significant disruption for travelers and commuters.
In response to the typhoon, the city of Nagasaki has made the decision to relocate a venue for the commemoration of the U.S. atomic bombing to an indoor convention center. This move aims to safeguard the attendees and prevent any potential dangers associated with the approaching storm.
Authorities in Kagoshima prefecture have issued an advisory for 60,000 households, urging them to evacuate as a precautionary measure. Additionally, Mazda Motor has suspended production at its plants in Hiroshima and Yamaguchi to ensure the safety of its employees.
This is not the first time Typhoon Khanun has wreaked havoc. Previously, it caused widespread blackouts in over 200,000 buildings in the Okinawa region, further emphasizing the potentially devastating impact of this powerful storm.
In light of these disruptions, Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways have been forced to cancel a total of 222 flights, adding to the 2,715 flights already disrupted since last week. The effects of the typhoon are being felt across the country, impacting not only travel plans but also the economy.
Meanwhile, South Korea has taken swift action to safeguard participants at the World Scout Jamboree by initiating their evacuation ahead of Typhoon Khanun’s arrival.
As Japan prepares for the impact of Typhoon Khanun, another storm, Typhoon Lan, is already on the horizon. This second typhoon is expected to hit central Japan on Sunday, further exacerbating the challenges faced by the country.
With both Typhoon Khanun and Typhoon Lan posing significant threats, it is crucial for authorities and citizens to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to minimize the impact of these powerful weather events.
