Typhoon Krosa Forecasted to Come Closer to Korean Coastlines Than Previously Expected

The tenth typhoon of the season, Krosa, is forecasted to come closer to the coasts of Busan and South Gyeongsang province than previously analyzed.

According to the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA), the medium grade is traveling northwest at 10km/h from the oceans 420km away from Japan’s Kagoshima Prefecture.

An official from the KMA said that the center of Krosa shows signs of separating as it is traveling out into the East Sea, which may lead it closer to Busan and South Gyeongsang province.

The KMA issued a typhoon preliminary special weather report over Busan, Ulsan, and parts of North and South Gyeongsang provinces.

Stronger gusts of wind are blowing in the in-land regions, with wind speeds measured between 6 to 8 meters per second.

The Korea Meteorological Agency predicted it will begin to rain in Busan and Ulsan from 3 am to 6 am tomorrow morning.

Total rainfall is forecast to be about 20-60mm, and it is expected to stop in the afternoon of the 15th.
