S. Korea raises typhoon alert status to second highest level as Tapah approaches Updated: 2019-09-21 12:28:22 KST

We begin with our top story this evening.
South Korea's interior and safety ministry has raised its weather alert level with Typhoon Tapah expected to make landfall on the Korean Peninsula over the weekend.
The decision was made by interior minister Chin Young in a meeting with related ministries on Saturday, where they discussed ways to minimize the potential damage from the typhoon.
The Korea Meteorological Administration says Typhoon Tapah is expected to pass through the eastern coast of Jeju island on Sunday morning and reach peak strength later that day, as it makes its way through the city of Busan.
The typhoon is likely to bring as much as 600 millimeters of rain and strong winds of up to 160 kilometers per hour to the southern regions tomorrow.
10 international flights in and out of Jeju International Airport have been cancelled, with authorities saying more flights are expected to be suspended in the coming hours.
