Taiwanese carriers announced Tuesday that all their flights to Osaka will be canceled the following day as Typhoon Jebi continued to batter Japan.

China Airlines, EVA Airways and Tigerair Taiwan said they will not operate any flights to Kansai International Airport on Wednesday due to Jebi, the strongest typhoon to hit Japan in 25 years.

Tigerair Taiwan also said that its Flight IT217 from Tokyo Haneda to Taoyuan will be postponed to Thursday.

In Osaka, Kansai airport has been closed due to flooding of its runways from storm surges.

According to foreign news wires, at least 700 flights in Japan had been cancelled as of Tuesday evening, and more than 1 million people in the path of the storm were told to evacuate.
