Event

Typhoon Haishen weakened to a tropical storm as it made a second landfall in the eastern portion of North Korea's South Hamgyong province late on Monday, September 7. As of 21:00 (local time), the system's center of circulation was approximately 432 km (268 mi) north-northeast of Osan Air Base, South Korea. The storm is forecast to continue gradually weakening as it tracks northward into China's Jilin and Heilongjiang provinces through Tuesday, September 8. Some uncertainty remains in the track, intensity, and forecast. 

Strong winds, heavy rainfall, and associated flooding and landslides are expected in North Korea over the coming days. Disruptions to transportation, business, and utilities are likely.

Context 

Tropical storms can form in the Pacific Ocean at any time of year, although most typhoons occur during a peak season between June and November. In general, storm systems make landfall along South Korea's southern and southeastern coasts, making these areas, which are home to many industrial and port facilities, particularly at risk of experiencing the full brunt of storms or typhoons. The country has comprehensive and reliable weather tracking and emergency management systems, although powerful storm systems can overwhelm preparedness and recovery programs.

Advice

Those in areas forecast to be affected by the storm system are advised to monitor local weather reports, confirm flight reservations, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, anticipate adverse weather and power and transportation disruptions, and remember that running water can be dangerous. Never drive through flooded streets; floodwater may also contain wastewater and chemical products.
