Southern Korea will see up to 200 mm of rainfall on Friday and Saturday as the country comes under the influence of passing typhoons.
The Korea Meteorological Administration said a cold and dry air mass colliding with a warm and humid mass over the Korea Strait will bring heavy rains to the south.
South Gyeongsang Province and Jeju Island will see up to 200 mm of rain, while South and North Jeolla provinces will be drenched in up to 40 mm of rainfall.
Haikui, the 11th typhoon of the year, is expected to bring hot and humid air into the country as it passes by the western coast of Okinawa on Saturday before making landfall south of Shanghai on Sunday.
If it joins forces with the ninth typhoon Saola, which is currently passing Hong Kong, it will bring even more humidity to Korea, while the 12th typhoon Kirogi will also push hot air into the country until it weakens to a tropical depress off Kagoshima, Japan.
