Typhoon Mitag to pass through southern part of Korean Peninsula this week

북상하는 태풍 '미탁'…전남 곳곳에 호우 특보

Typhoon Mitag to pass through southern part of Korean Peninsula this week

 

Typhoon Mitag is expected to bring heavy rain and strong winds to the Jeju, Gwangju and Jeonnam regions that were battered by several typhoons weeks earlier.

 

Jongmin Kim reports.

 

Mitag, the season's 18th typhoon and the seventh to affect the Korean Peninsula this year, could bring powerful winds and heavy rain to the southern parts of the peninsula, the local weather agency said on Tuesday, calling for thorough preparations to prevent damage.

 

The KMA forecast the typhoon will move toward the peninsula after passing Taiwan and mainland China, and could hit Mokpo in the South Jeolla Province at around 9 a.m. on Thursday and pass through the southern provinces to the East Sea.

 

According to weather authorities, the southern island, which is already under the influence of the system, could get up to 50 millimeters of downpours per hour through early Friday.

 

South Jeolla may get hit with anywhere between 100 and 250 millimeters, as this typhoon is forecast to bring heavy downpours along with strong winds, so extra precaution is required especially those in low lying areas. However, there is a chance of the typhoon weakening as it passes through the mainlands of Taiwan and China.

 

If Mitag lands on the Korean Peninsula, it will be the seventh typhoon to hit the country this year; equaling the record set in 1959, since typhoon tracking started in 1951.
