The fearful typhoon ‘Bolaven’ has occurred again… Possibility of impact on the Korean Peninsula

A typhoon with the same name as Typhoon ‘Bolaben’, which caused great damage to the Korean Peninsula in 2012, is heading north.

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration on the 9th, Typhoon No. 15 ‘Bolaven’ occurred in the southeastern sea of ​​Guam on the 7th and is increasing in strength and moving north. At 3 a.m. on this day, it was passing through the sea about 770km southeast of Guam and proceeding westward.

According to the current expected route, it is expected to reach the sea about 1,230km southeast of Tokyo, Japan, at around 3 a.m. on the 14th at ‘very strong’ intensity. The ‘very strong’ typhoon has a maximum wind speed near the center of 44 meters per second (159.4 km per hour), which is strong enough to blow a person away.

The likelihood of affecting the Korean Peninsula is still메이저사이트 considered low. Currently, the Korean Peninsula is under the influence of cold continental high pressure, so there is an analysis that there is a small possibility that Bolaven will come up near the Korean Peninsula.

Meteorological authorities in each country, including the European Medium-Range Weather Forecasts ( ECMWF ), predict that Bolaven will turn to the right in the southern seas of Japan and advance northeast. It is predicted that it will not land anywhere in Korea or Japan and will only move in the sea before disappearing.

However, since the forecast model is flexible and changes every day depending on weather conditions, it is necessary to pay attention to the progress of future typhoons.

Bolaven is the name of a plateau located in Laos and is the same name as Typhoon Bolaven, which struck the Korean Peninsula in August 2012, killing 10 people and causing property damage worth 636.5 billion won.
