The 5th typhoon rose is rapidly heading north to the Korean Peninsula. Since about an hour ago, it is the closest to Jeju Island and passes the southeastern sea of Seogwipo. Let’s connect Jeju.
Reporter Kim Yeon-sun, JIBS, please tell us the current situation.
I am now in Beophwanpo-gu, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do.
As you can see, the rain is falling quite thick and strong. The wind is not blowing so hard.
According to the Meteorological Administration, it is known that Typhoon Rose No. 5 is closest to Jeju at this time.
Even in the waters of Beophwan Port, where I am now, the waves of the sea are rising higher and harsher than before.
It is expected that the typhoon will leave Jeju in the afternoon and head to Busan.
Currently, Typhoon Rose No. 5 is heading to Busan at a speed of 40 km/h from about 110 km southeast of Seogwipo.
Typhoon Rose is a small typhoon with a central pressure of 990 hectopascals.
Today, it is expected that 50 to 150 mm of rain will fall all over Jeju, and up to 250 mm of rain is expected to fall even more in mountainous areas.
Currently, entry to Hallasan is also prohibited.
I am also concerned about the damage caused by the wind. The maximum instantaneous wind speed is 30m per second, which makes it difficult for people to walk.
Currently, wind shear and typhoon warnings have been issued at Jeju International Airport, and 27 domestic flights have been canceled.
Passenger ships to and from Jeju have been completely controlled for ships, and 2,000 ships are in refuge at each port.
The Jeju Self-Governing Province's Disaster and Safety Countermeasure Headquarters is continuing emergency work without releasing tensions until the typhoon leaves Jeju.
