Typhoon Danas approaching Korean Peninsula

 

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, the seasons 5th typhoon Danas was at some 480km northeast from Manila, Philippines as of 9 a.m. on Wednesday, moving north-northeast at 15km per hour.

 

The typhoon is expected to pass through the West Sea around this Sunday, the 21st, however, it is difficult to determine the exact timeline or direction.

 

Despite the uncertainty, the weather agency said regardless of its direction, the typhoon will push tropical vapor in the Korean Peninsula's direction putting influence on the already approaching monsoon front and the country is likely to face heavy downpours later this week.

 

In fact, the Gwangju Regional Meteorological Administration issued pre-alerts on heavy downpours for Goheung, Yeosu and Wando on Wednesday.

 

The administration said the areas are likely to see rain of 30mm per hour from this evening and required nearby residents to be alerted.
