Let's now go over to our Lee Jee-hyun at the weather center for more on Typhoon Tapah. Jee-hyun, give us the details.

Hello Soo-young. The southern parts of the country including Jeju are being drenched by heavy showers. Tapah is expected to be nearest to Jeju Island around 3 PM, while it's expected to be closest to Busan around 10 PM tonight and will continue to travel in a northeasterly direction.

It's brought torrential showers to Jeju, other southern regions, as well as some eastern parts of the country. Nearly 600 millimeters of rain was seen in Jeju and more than 200 millimeters in the Jeolla-do and Gyeongsang-do Provinces.

More showers are expected to fall into tomorrow, with Jeju and the eastern coastal regions expected to see more than 400 millimeters of rain. Extra precautions will be needed as the typhoon is also packing winds of 35 to 45 meters per second, strong enough to topple trees and knock down walls.

Typhoon alerts are in place across various parts of the nation along with strong winds and heavy rain alerts and it's very likely weather alerts will also be issue in the upper regions. Be careful and keep yourself up-to-date.
