The third typhoon ‘Guchol’, which occurred off the Philippine Sea, is expected to head for Japan.
According to the Korea Meteorological Administration, Typhoon Guchol, which occurred 1,490 km east of Manila in the Philippines at 9 pm on the 6th, is heading north towards Taiwan.
Guchol, which is growing in strength, is expected to turn northeast and head for Japan on the 10th.
Guchol currently maintains a central air pressure of 996 hPa (hectopascals), a central maximum wind speed of 20 m/s, and a strong wind radius of 220 km.
Guchol is expected to develop into a ‘river’ stage typhoon with maximum wind speed of 33 ㎧ or more and less than 44 ㎧ on the 9th.
Among typhoon intensities which are classified into four levels: medium, strong, very strong, and extremely strong, ‘strong’ means the level that a train can expel.
Guchol is expected to approach about 570 km east-southeast of Okinawa on the 12th.
Like the last typhoon Mawar, there are concerns about heavy rain damage caused by heavy rain, but it is known that the possibility of a direct impact on Korea is still low.
This Typhoon Guchol is a name introduced by the Federated States of Micronesia and it means ‘turmeric’, a type of medicinal herb.
