Worst of Typhoon Chanthu passes but alerts remain for southern coast Updated: 2021-09-17 15:14:45 KST

According to the Korea Metrological Administration, as of 3 PM typhoon Chanthu was about 160 kilometers south-southeast of the city of Tongyeong, moving eastward at a speed of 33 kilometers per hour toward Fukuoka, Japan and forecast to make landfall at Osaka overnight.

For Korea, the worst has passed, but a typhoon advisory is currently in effect for the waters around Jeju and coastal areas such as Busan and parts of Jeollanam-do and Gyeongsangnam-do provinces. Torrential rain is expected to continue at a rate of 50 millimeters an hour throughout the day, with Busan to see the brunt of the storm this evening.

The typhoon came closest to Jeju Island at around 7 this morning, causing several flights to and from Jeju to be canceled while ferries were also grounded.
Torrential rain and gusts overnight downed trees and streetlights, tore away parts of a guard rail and submerged roads and farmland. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported. The Peninsula will be out of the typhoon's range overnight.
