Korea is bracing for another typhoon this weekend, following Chan-hom, which damaged facilities and roads, and caused cancelled flights and ferries across the country last weekend.

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA), Nangka, a strong typhoon, is moving toward southern Japan. The typhoon, travelling at 8 km/h, is expected to reach 1,010 kilometers off Okinawa by Tuesday morning.

“By Friday, Nangka is likely to reach Kyushu in southern Japan and move toward the Dokso islets, bringing heavy rain to Korea,” a KMA official said. “Jeju Island, southern areas and the east coast of the Korean Peninsula are forecast to be largely affected.

“On Friday and Saturday, the impact may become stronger. But the path of the typhoon may change, so people are advised to pay attention to forecasts.”

Meanwhile, typhoon Chan-hom dissipated early Monday, and the KMA lifted heavy rain warnings across the country. Chan-hom dumped more than 1,430 millimeters of rain on mountainous regions on Jeju, while more than 390 millimeters fell on Mount Jiri in South Gyeongsang Province.

But the rainfall in the central parts of the country was not enough to solve long-lasting droughts, especially in Gangwon and Gyeonggi provinces.

Chan-hom delayed ferries and more than 100 domestic flights between Jeju and other major cities, inconveniencing about 2,000 summer vacationers waiting to board planes and ferries on Jeju.
