Typhoon ‘Kanun’ is weaker than expected, but continues to report Jeju and South Coast damage

Although the 6th typhoon ‘Kanun’ is moving north and weakening in power than expected, reports of damage continue in Jeju and the southern coast, which are in the area of ​​influence of the typhoon.

As of 10:00 p.m. on the 9th, Typhoon Kanun reached the sea about 200 km east-southeast of Seogwipo, Jeju. Currently, the central air pressure is 970 hPa (hectopascal) and the maximum wind speed is 35 m/s. In Kyushu, Japan, Typhoon Kanun, which was so strong that 1.33 million people had to evacuate, has become weaker than expected.

However, the expected path crosses the Korean Peninsula vertically, and the sea surface temperature is about 28 to 29 degrees, so the typhoon can maintain its power, so it is not safe. The speed 스포츠토토of movement is also slow at about 20 to 25 km per hour, so although the typhoon itself is weak, the damage can be great.

Currently, typhoon warnings are issued in Jeju, Jeonnam, Gyeongnam, and the South Sea. As the typhoon gradually moves north, measures to prevent typhoon damage will be widely applied. The Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters (Critical Response) announced that 7,383 people had been evacuated in preparation for the northern Kanun.

Local governments are preparing by mobilizing all available resources, such as barrier walls and sandbags. The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport restricts the passage of some bridges from midnight on the 10th, and the Korea Water Resources Corporation is discharging water from the Nakjungdong River Weir Management Team. From 3:00 am on the 10th, a typhoon warning will be issued for the offshore of Gyeongbuk and the far north of the southern East Sea.

The Korea Meteorological Administration predicted that Typhoon Kanun would maintain its strength as ‘strong’ until it reached the sea 140 km south of Tongyeong, but on the morning of the 10th when it landed on the Korean Peninsula, the strength would be ‘medium’ and weaker than expected. Afterwards, it was expected to maintain moderate intensity until 3 p.m., when it reaches 60 km south-southeast of Cheongju, then gradually weaken and move to North Korea.
