Typhoon Soulik  Updates

August 24: From The Korea Herald

Typhoon Soulik was passing through the country's central regions after battering the southern region, damaging buildings and roads, weather authorities said Friday. 

The tropical storm hit the central city of Daejeon, South Chungcheong Province, about 140 kilometers south of Seoul, at around 6 a.m. and is heading northeast, the Korea Meteorological Administration said. 

The typhoon weakened overnight, with a maximum wind speed of 22 meters per second, or 79 kph. The wind radius is measured at 210 km.

Seoul will not be directly affected by Soulik. The typhoon was initially forecast to pass right through southern Seoul but changed course.

It is forecast to hit eastern coastal areas in Gangwon Province by 11 a.m. before moving out of the country.

The typhoon brought heavy rains and strong wind over the southern regions, causing blackouts and damage to buildings and roads. It has left one missing and two injured.
