광주·전남 9일째 폭염특보..밤부터 태풍 영향권

Typhoon Francisco to hit Busan and nearby areas


The seasons 8th typhoon Francisco is approaching the Korean Peninsula from the south.

Hyungjin Ro has details.


The record-breaking heat wave continued in Gwangju and South Jeolla Province while the small-scale Typhoon Francisco landed on the country's southern coast.


Heat wave warnings have been in effect for several days in Gwangju and 22 cities and counties in the South Jeolla regions. The mercury went as high as 40 degrees Celsius in some parts of the nation, making it some of the the hottest days of the season so far.


The KMA (Korea Meteorological Administration) said the eighth typhoon of the season has been weakened by relatively lower water temperatures in the ocean and friction from land areas. The typhoon, which will bring heavy rain and strong winds, is expected to help ease the sweltering heat.


The typhoon is now passing through Busan and nearby Geoje Island. More than 200 millimeters of rain is forecast for the southern coast and the eastern coast of Gangwon Province, while Seoul and other provinces including Jeolla will receive 10 to 60 millimeters of precipitation.


The typhoon is expected to dissipate in Andong of South Gyeongsang Province by tomorrow.


The season's ninth typhoon, Lekima, is also currently making its way toward the Korean Peninsula and could develop into a super typhoon. However, experts forecast it will likely change its direction to Japan or Taiwan instead. The KMA are monitoring the situation.
