In Jeju, where rain and wind have been blowing for the third day due to the indirect effect of Typhoon No. 14 ‘Chantu’, more than 678 mm of rain fell on Mt. Halla.

According to the Jeju Meteorological Administration on the 15th, the amount of precipitation from the 13th to 4 am of the same day was 678.5 mm for the azalea field of Mt. Halla and 605.5 mm from the southern wall of Mt. Halla.

The precipitation for each other point is 349 mm at the Typhoon Center, 334.5 mm in Gashiri in Jeju, 328.4 mm in Seogwipo, 298.5 mm in Sancheondan, 170.6 mm in Seongsan, 126.2 mm in Jeju, and 124.5 mm in Gapado.

Typhoon Chantu went up to the sea southwest of Seogwipo in Jeju this morning and is expected to be closest to Jeju in the early morning of the 17th.

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, Typhoon Chantu is advancing southeast at 8 km/h in the sea about 360 km south-southwest of Seogwipo as of 3 am on the 15th.

The central pressure is 975 hPa, the wind radius is 280 km, and the maximum wind speed near the center is 35 m/s, which is a strong level.

Chantu is expected to move very slowly northward to the sea southwest of Seogwipo at a speed of 1 to 9 km/h until the 16th, then turn to the northeast on the 17th and come closer to the sea near the southern part of Jeju.

The Korea Meteorological Administration estimates that Chantu will be closest to Jeju between 6 and 7 a.m. on the 17th as it passes about 60 km southwest of Seogwipo around 3 a.m. on the 17th.

At this time, the central pressure of Chantu is expected to be 980 hPa, and the maximum wind speed near the center is expected to be 29 m/s.

The power is currently weakening somewhat from ‘strong’ to ‘medium’, but if you convert 29 m/s to 104 km/h, this is also a formidable century.

The Korea Meteorological Administration predicts that Typhoon Chantu will pass through the sea about 90 km south-southeast of Busan and pass through Tsushima Island in Japan around 3 pm on the same day after Typhoon Chantu comes closest to Jeju.

The Korea Meteorological Administration said, “Jeju will be directly affected by typhoon Chantu from tomorrow (16th) to the afternoon of the day after tomorrow.” requested

The Jeju Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters plans to issue the first stage of emergency response during the day to prevent typhoon damage in earnest.

When the first phase is issued, a cooperative system between 13 cooperative departments and related organizations will be established to manage passengers in case of flight cancellation, manage traffic conditions such as public transportation, manage the novel coronavirus infection, and observe vulnerable areas such as collapse of an axis.
