Due to Typhoon Doksuri, Taiwan cancels the Han Kuang military training. In preparation for what may be the most powerful storm to make landfall on Taiwan in the last four years, the island nation has called off some of its major military training.
Doksuri has attained the power of a super typhoon and is currently racing toward the straits that separate Taiwan and the Philippines. It is packing gusts of up to 240 kilometers per hour (149 miles per hour).
The annual Han Kuang drills, which began on Monday, are a test of Taiwan's security in the event that China invades Taiwan. These drills are held every year. It is currently impossible to tell whether or not the subsequent four days of the exercise will be impacted in any manner.
Taiwan considers itself to be an independent nation, separate from the Chinese mainland, with its own set of laws and a government chosen via democratic elections.
On the other hand, China considers the island to be a province that has broken away and will eventually be brought back under Beijing's jurisdiction, using force if that becomes necessary.

At this time of the year, typhoons are typical in the western Pacific; nonetheless, the island has not been directly struck by a typhoon since 2019. It is anticipated that Taiwan will begin to experience the effects of the superstorm on Wednesday and Thursday.
The Meteorological Administration of Taiwan has issued advisories due to the impending high winds and heavy rainfall. The officials in the port city of Kaohsiung in the south rushed quickly to pick up containers that were floating in the water.

As Typhoon Doksuri came closer to the Philippines, schools and government offices in the northern province of Cagayan were forced to close. About one million people make their homes in the province that is prone to flooding.
Local officials have warned that storm surges might reach or even surpass 10 feet in height and have issued evacuation orders for coastal areas. Ferry services have also been suspended in preparation for the storm surges.
The storm that is locally known as Egay is projected to have poured more than 200 millimeters (7.9 inches) of rain on vast swaths of the main northern island of Luzon by midday on Wednesday, according to the local meteorological agency. Climate scientists have been warning for a long time that the severity and frequency of storms will rise as a result of global warming.
During the Han Kuang exercise that will take place this year, Taiwan will practice its response in the event that its principal airport is attacked in addition to responding to a blockade that is led by China. This is one of the most significant events that has taken occurred since the drilling operations began in 1984.

Final Words

In the latter part of this week, Doksuri is expected to go to southern China, which is still in the process of rebuilding after the destruction inflicted by the typhoon Talim earlier this month.
