South Korea Prepares for Arrival of Typhoon Lingling

SEOUL – South Korea prepared on Friday for the arrival of the powerful Typhoon Lingling, which is expected to affect the entire western coast of the country with strong winds and heavy rain.

The typhoon is expected to hit South Korea on Saturday before making landfall in North Korea.

Lingling, the 13th typhoon of the season, was at midday local time (0300 GMT) situated around 540 kilometers (335.5 miles) southwest of the South Korean island of Jeju, and was moving north at 20 kilometers per hour, accompanied by winds of about 160 km/h, according to the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA).

Although Lingling is expected to weaken slightly in the coming hours, the typhoon – whose intensity was rated as “very powerful” – could generate “record” gusts of up to 200 km/h, capable of overturning cars and boats and knocking down trees, in several islands in the southeast of the country.

KMA issued a warning to the inhabitants of these regions.

The storm is expected to hit Jeju on Saturday morning and continue to move along South Korea’s west coast to the North Korean province of Hwanghae later in the day. By then it is expected to have weakened with winds of around 100 km/h, according to KMA forecasts.
