Typhoon Nanmadol is heading north, and a typhoon warning has been issued in the eastern seas of Jeju Island.
The Coastguard launched a search after an accident in which a man was swept away by waves while fishing on the seashore.
Contact reporters who are on site.
Reporter Shin Ik-hwan, did you find someone who was swept away by the waves?
Yes, I’m on the coast road in Yongdam-dong, Jeju City.
It is a place where a man fishing on the seashore was swept away by the waves.
The Coastguard is currently carrying out rescue operations at the site.
Around 7:50 PM the Coast Guard received a report that the fisherman had been swept away by the waves.
The Coast Guard immediately launched a search.
At this time, the Coastguard has found a missing person floating on the water.
Due to the high waves of 3~4m, it is difficult to access the lifeboat including the lifeboat entry.
In addition, during the rescue operation, one member of the Coast Guard was injured and taken to hospital.
The Coastguard intends to carry out rescue operations while monitoring the situation at the scene.
Is there any impact from Typhoon Nanmadol?
Yes, there is no rain here, only strong winds.
Typhoon warnings have been issued for the eastern and southern coastal areas of Jeju Island.
A strong wind advisory is in effect across Jeju.
Between tonight and tomorrow dawn, there is a possibility of a storm on the coast of Jeju.
Special attention is needed to avoid damage such as flooding of the shoreline and damage to facilities.
Rain is forecast to fall by 5 to 40 mm by tomorrow morning, and the current rainfall is very small, so we need to prepare for wind damage rather than rain.
Jeju Island is implementing the second phase of the emergency duty.
We are restricting access to coastal and low-lying areas, and strengthening patrols and inspections for disaster-prone areas.
In particular, as damage from strong winds is expected, we have taken precautions for facilities such as signboards, construction sites, and plastic houses.
We asked for thorough management as crop damage is expected from strong winds.
As a storm warning was issued in Jeju sea, only one of the 12 passenger ships on 9 routes connecting Jeju and other areas was operating on one route.
Currently, about 1,900 fishing boats are being evacuated from ports and harbors in Jeju-do.
So far, this is KBS News’ Ik-Hwan Shin on the coastal road in Yongdam-dong, Jeju City.
