Typhoon Tapah to Bring Heavy Rains and Strong Winds to the Southern Region Until Sunday Night

As the 17th typhoon ‘Tapah’ is forecast to move north and affect the peninsula over the weekend, heavy rain and strong winds are expected in the southern regions of the country, including Busan.

As of 3 pm yesterday afternoon, Tapah was rated as weak, with a central air pressure of 980 hecto-pascals and a maximum wind speed of 29 m/s near the center, moving at a speed of 2 kilometers per hour.

However, Tapah was expected to expand its power with a speed of 10km per hour and a maximum wind speed of 97 km/hr by 9 pm on the 20th.

The typhoon is expected to begin affecting the southern region on Saturday morning.

On the western south coast of Gyeongnam, it is expected to rain from midnight on the 21st, and by 9 am, rain will spread to most areas of the southern region including Busan which is expected to last until Monday morning.

The expected rainfall is between 100-200 mm.

Many places are expected to receive more than 300 mm of rainfall and must be prepared for rain damage, such as lowland flooding and sewage flooding.

Due to the impact of the typhoon, the strongest winds of 110 km/hr to 145 km/hr are expected in coastal and island areas from 21st to 23rd.

The Korean Meteorological Administration said typhoon Tapah will strengthen to mid-intensity and mid-size as it approaches Busan, affecting the port city the most at around 9 pm on Sunday night.

In addition, Namhae is expected to receive high waves of 2 meters to 9 meters from the southeastern and southeastern seas.
