Typhoon Nanmadol Predicted to Trigger Heavy Rains in South Korea


edisiindonesia.com - South Korea will again be affected by the cyclone. Just now Typhoon Hinnamnor hit, now there is another Typhoon Nanmadol about to pass.


Typhoon Nanmadol is predicted to trigger heavy rains and strong winds in several areas of South Korea, including Jeju Island.


Based on Yonhap, Friday (16/9/2022), initially Typhoon Nanmadol will hit Japan, which passes through Okinapa, then then arrives on the mainland of Kyushu Island on Monday, September 19, 2022.


After Kyushu, Typhoon Nonmadol will return to the ocean. However, the weather on Jeju Island is also predicted to be affected by the typhoon. That impact began to occur this weekend.


The cyclone was predicted to cause strong winds and large waves of up to 10 meters in the eleventh sea south and east of Jeju. Gyeongsang Island, which is in the southeast, is also likely to experience rain with an intensity of 50 millimeters per hour.


The Korean Meteorological Administration also said Jeju and Gyeongsang Islands could experience strong winds of up to 30 meters per second as Nanmadol passed through their areas.


Typhoon Namnadol has a central atmospheric pressure of 955 hectopascals and a maximum wind speed of up to 40 meters per second.


The typhoon's strength is equivalent to that of Typhoon Hinnamnor which made landfall in South Korea in early September 2022. However, this time the typhoon did only pass through South Korea, and it was predicted that it would not land on Jeju Island. 


Typhoon Hinnamnor caused casualties in South Korea. There were also cases of seven people drowning and dying in underground parking lots as a result of the cyclone.
