Update: Aug. 5, 12 p.m.
Heavy rain from typhoon Muifa has prompted the organizers of three Jeju festivals (Samyang Black Sand Beach Festival, Chuja Island Yellow Corvina Festival and Pyoseon Haevichi Beach Festival) to postpone events. For more information, please click here.




Typhoon Muifa has changed direction, moving to the northwest towards Shanghai, China. The Korea Meteorological Administration expects the outer region of the typhoon is likely to bring heavy rain to Korea on the weekend.

As of Aug. 4, at 3 a.m., Muifa was about 340km away from Okinawa, Japan and moving toward the Chinese mainland, which it may hit on Aug. 6 or 7. Muifa has developed into a super-sized typhoon at 945hPa, a maximum wind speed of 45m/s and a radius of 500km.

The Korea Meteorological Administration has also recommended that people pay attention to the latest weather information since Muifa’s route is unpredictable.
