Taiwan: The worst drought in 73 years

Any bigger significant typhoons during the last West Pacific typhoon season and severe drought during dry monsoon season are expected to bring the strongest drought in Taiwan in 73 years.

Water supplies in the country were partially limited and the first red alert for water supplies in 6 years are valid.

While in March 2021, drought was considered for the worst in 50 years, until the start of April 2021, the worst drought in 73 years was announced by officials.

The government is under pressure to ensure continuous supply to water-intensive industries such as semiconductor manufacturing.

According to 16-day precipitation forecast, storms are forecasted in eastern Taiwan only after 5. April 2021.
