태풍 하이선 동해안 따라 북상…오늘 오전 부산 근접
Our top story this morning.
Another tropical storm is arriving in South Korea.
Typhoon Haishen is 120 kilometers south of Busan, and it’ll soon be moving along the country’s east coast.
Our Jang Tae-hyun is at a port in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province.
Tae-hyun, how’s it looking down there?
Good morning, Mok-yeon.
Typhoon Haishen is just off the south coast now,… so the wind and rain are getting stronger.
Some of the regions of Pohang have lost electricity, and people are advised to evacuate.
As of 7 AM today, some 600 people in the Gyeongsangnam-do Province have had to find temporary shelters.
The typhoon was expected to pass right through the middle of South Korea, but forecasters now expect it to make landfall on the east coast of the Gyeongsang-do Provinces on Monday.
The Korean weather agency says after the typhoon gets to the northeast of Busan,… it will then pass through the East Sea, moving North.
By 3 PM today, it will be 60 kilometers away from east of Gangneung in Gangwon-do Province and head to North Korea by midnight.
Busan is expecting 100 to 300 millimeters of rain and a wind speed up to about 145 kilometers an hour,… strong enough to send rocks flying and flip over cars.
The country raised the typhoon alert to its highest level as of Sunday 7 PM.
Along with the warning, authorities advised safety measures to protect people, especially those living in low-lying coastal areas and those vulnerable to landslides.
People in the affected areas should refrain from going out and take extra safety precautions.
I’ll be back with more updates.
Back to you.
