Even though I was at home, even with the air conditioner turned on, I could barely breathe.]

Although it is small with a radius of 250 km, its power weakens as it passes through the low sea temperature, so it cannot go north to Korea.

The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted that Typhoon Airi would pass the southern sea of ​​Seogwipo at around 3 am tomorrow (the 4th) and pass the southeast sea of ​​Jeju Island at dawn the next morning, and then land on land near Kagoshima, Japan at 3 pm the day after tomorrow.

According to this route, it is expected that Korea will not be directly affected by the typhoon, but high waves will rise on Jeju Island and the south coast tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, and 30 to 80 mm of rain will fall in the southeastern part of Jeju and mountainous areas.
