Super Typhoon Halong Heading Towards Korea

THE HAPS

 

Super Typhoon Halong, the third major super typhoon of the season, is expected to affect the Korean peninsula this weekend as it heads north after impacting Guam over the weekend.

Halong rapidly intensified on late Friday and Saturday, going from a minimal typhoon with 75-mph winds to a super typhoon with winds in excess of 150 mph in just 24 hours, according to the U.S. military’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center based in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

Halong is expected to affect Jeju Island by Friday and the southern peninsula this weekend according to the Korean Meteorological Agency. Heavy rains and strong winds are expected.

Korea is expected to remain vulnerable to typhoons until October this year according to the KMA.
