Typhoon ‘Kanun’ close to Seoul and prospect of penetrating… Up to 600mm of heavy rain in Gangwon

It is expected that the center of Typhoon No. 6 ‘Kanun’ will penetrate the Korean Peninsula as it is close to the east of Seoul. There are concerns that the typhoon could slowly penetrate the interior of the Korean Peninsula and cause heavy rain across the country, causing more damage.

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration on the 8th, Kanun entered the southern coast at an intensity of ‘strong’ (maximum wind speed of 33m or more and less than 44m per second) on the morning of the 10th, and then changed to ‘medium’ (maximum wind speed of 25m or more and less than 32m per second) in the south of Chungju, Chungcheongbuk-do in the afternoon. it looks like it’s going to go up The typhoon warning is expected to start with Jeju on the afternoon of the 9th, and extend to southern regions such as Jeolla and Gyeongsang that night, and to the metropolitan area of ​​Gyeongbuk, Chungcheong, and the 10th.

Rain due to the typhoon will start on the 9th. From the 9th to the 11th, ‘extreme heavy rain’ can fall in Yeongdong, Gangwon Province, with a forecast of 200 to 400mm (up to 600mm or more), especially up to 100mm per hour. The Yeongdong area메이저놀이터 is not only in the ‘dangerous semicircle’ on the right side of the typhoon, but also heavy rain is expected due to the topographical factor of the Taebaek Mountains. When the high-temperature, high-humidity water vapor of a typhoon hits a high mountain range, a rain cloud belt develops strongly.

In addition, a lot of rain can fall more than 30mm per hour, such as 100 to 200mm in the west coast and southern region of Chungcheongnam-do, Jeju, up to 300mm in the south coast, and up to 200mm in the metropolitan area, Yeongseo in Gangwon, and inland in Chungbuk.

The strength of the wind has increased and the area affected by the strong wind has also expanded. This is because the area close to the center of the strong wind radius (the radius where winds of 15 m/s or more from the center of the typhoon blow) widens as the typhoon center line moves deep inland. The ‘strong wind at the level of derailing a train’ (40m per second) expanded from parts of the south coast of Gyeongnam as of the 7th to the south coast of Gyeongnam, Jeollanam-do as of the 8th. The ‘strong wind at the level of blowing off the roof’ (25 to 35 m per second) has expanded to the entire southern region and Yeongdong, Gangwon. The Korea Meteorological Administration said, “There is a possibility that Kanun will move westward or eastward than currently expected, but rain and wind are expected as the whole country is within the typhoon strong wind radius.”
