Now, let's analyze the current situation of the typhoon and the course of the typhoon in detail with reporter Seo Dong-gyun of the meteorological team.

Reporter Seo, please check again from the current location of Typhoon Nan Madol.

<Reporter> This

is the appearance of Typhoon Nanmadol as seen from the satellite.

You can see the spiral vortex created by the typhoon so clearly.

It is currently moving north from the western sea of ​​Kagoshima, Japan.

It is expected to land in the inland of Kyushu, Japan around dawn tomorrow and then penetrate the interior of Japan.

Nan Madol once maintained a super-strength rating, but now it maintains a 'very strong' rating, which has been lowered by one level.

However, it is a typhoon with very strong winds exceeding 49 m/s from the center.

Although the distance from the center of the typhoon to Korea is a little far, since the radius of the strong wind of the typhoon is about 300 km to Korea, some Gyeongnam coasts will be affected by being within the direct impact zone.


I am worried about the damage from wind and rain.

Let's take a look at the nearest time of the typhoon by region once again.


Let's take a look at the most recent time in Korea where the typhoon passes by region.

First, we will approach Seogwipo at 5am, Geoje at 9am, Busan at 11am, Ulsan at 12pm and Pohang at 1pm.

Although the center of the typhoon is far away, the strong wind radius of the typhoon is large and the force of the typhoon is large, so it will be indirectly affected by rain and wind.

Up to 150mm of rain is expected on the coast of Gyeongnam by tomorrow, and as warm steam from the typhoon meets cold air from the north, up to 100mm of rain is forecast for Yeongdong, Gangwon, and 40mm for eastern Honam.

Wind is also an issue.

The turning point of this typhoon is from dawn to noon tomorrow, and winds of over 35 m/s will blow instantaneously in Jeju Island and Yeongnam, and gusts of 15 to 25 m/s will blow across the coast of the country, including the west coast.


Like the last Hinnamno, is there a reason why super strong typhoons come so often?


Let's take a look at the frequency of appearance of super strong typhoons.

This is the result of analysis by a team of experts from the World Meteorological Organization's Typhoon Committee.

Although it has been jagged since 1980, it has generally shown an upward trend.

The energy source that creates a typhoon is warm water vapor.

This shows the sea surface temperature near Korea and Japan, and you can see that the sea water temperature is very warm at 28 and 29 degrees.

It is about 1 degree higher than normal, but if the sea temperature is getting higher and higher due to climate change, the risk of a typhoon that can have such a super strong rating is increasing once a typhoon occurs.
