Default Typhoon Feared to Hit Korea Peninsula Weekend -- Second Typhoon This Week

Typhoon Feared to Hit Peninsula Weekend

By Lee Jin-woo
Staff Reporter

Following last week’s Typhoon Megi, the nation is expected to
encounter another massive typhoon called Chaba this weekend.

As of Friday morning, Typhoon Chaba, which is approaching the
southeastern sea some 600km off Okinawa, is likely to shift its course
to the northwest and land on the Korean peninsula this weekend or
early next week, according to the Korea Meteorological Administration

A KMA meteorologist said Friday Typhoon Chaba is powerful enough to
influence over 700km of its surrounding area. It is necessary for
citizens to take precautions against the possible damages of the
typhoon, he said.

``It is still not easy to predict the exact course of the typhoon.
But, it is expected to strongly influence the peninsula due to its
massive power, whether it moves toward Japan or Korea,’’ he added.
``It is important to check the course of the typhoon closely,
especially from Saturday, so that we can minimize the possible

In addition, the period between Aug. 30 and Sept. 1 has traditionally
shown the highest sea level of the year, forecasting the high risk of
storm waves near Cheju island and other islets across the southern and
southwestern sea coasts.
