South Korea is about to get hit by a third tropical storm in just two weeks.
Typhoon Haishen is on its way north from Okinawa, Japan right now towards South Korea’s east coast.
Arirang’s Jang Tae-hyun is at the Pohang passenger ship terminal in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province.
Tae-hyun, how’s it looking down there?

Devin, it’s windy and cloudy, but it’s not raining much yet.
The Pohang passenger terminal is where boats leave for Ulleung Island, but they’ve all been cancelled because of Typhoon Haishen.
The storm was expected to pass right through the middle of South Korea, but now it’s forecast to arrive at the east coast of the Gyeongsang-do Provinces on Monday.
The Korean weather agency says the typhoon is likely to arrive in waters some 80 kilometer east of Busan at around 9 AM, then pass through the East Sea, moving North.
Busan is expecting 100 to 300 millimeters of rain and a wind speed up to about 145 kilometers an hour.
That’s strong enough to send rocks flying and flip over cars.
As of 9 AM on Sunday, the country has raised the landslide alert to its highest level in several regions like Jeju Island, Busan, Ulsan and Jeollanam-do Province.
I’ll be staying here for the night and will be back for Monday’s weather forecasts.
Back to you, Devin.
