Experiencing a typhoon is definitely no fun, especially these days when they’re getting stronger and are causing widespread damages.
Last October 4, China was rocked by Typhoon Mujigae which made landfall in the southern province of Guangdong with the speed of 217 km per hour. It was classified as a Category 4-equivalent typhoon and so far, reports are saying that 20 lives have been lost and that the damages are already amounting to an estimated $3.66 billion. Clearly, this typhoon is the most destructive one to hit the area.
How did the storm became this strong in the first place? Well, it looks like China is partly to blame for it.
The Chinese military allegedly fired a missile directly at Typhoon Mujigae.
Several news websites are reporting that the Chinese government fired a missile from Hainan Island straight into the eye of the storm.
Dubbed the Heavy Sword, the SY-400 is a large, 1 ton, Chinese guided ballistic missile.
The SY-400, also known as the Heavy Sword, is a large, 1 ton, 180-200km ballistic missile in the Chinese arsenal that uses its advanced rocket motor, maneuverability, sensors and datalinks, and body mounted airstrikes and fins to evade enemy missile defense systems and drop munition payloads throughout its flight.
China fired the SY-400 at Typhoon Mujigae, a Category 4 storm.
The launch into Mujigae wasn’t a military attack of retaliation, but instead a science mission.
What’s the big idea behind it? It has been said that the launching of the 1-ton SY-400 ballistic missile was a scientific mission aimed at gathering and recording data about Typhoon Mujigae. By dropping sensors into the storm, scientists will have access to accurate information about its path and strength.
Unfortunately, the storm only got stronger because of the missile.
Speculations on the internet are saying that the military actually fired the missile in the hopes of stopping the typhoon, instead of merely gathering information about it.
As odd as that sounds, this wasn’t even China’s first attempt on weather manipulation. Back in 2008, China launched 1,104 cloud-seeding missiles to prevent rainfall during the Summer Olympics opening ceremony held in Beijing.
The Category 4 storm’s devastation claimed 20 lives and resulted to massive property loss.
Many are believing the theory that the government was really attempting to kill the storm. Instead, the plan backfired and Typhoon Mujigae instead killed many individuals and destroyed a lot of properties.
