Lebensbedrohlicher Taifun Hinnamnor donnert Richtung Südkorea

By Ninian Carter

September 5, 2022 - Südkorea bereitet sich auf den möglicherweise stärksten Sturm seiner Geschichte vor – Taifun Hinnamnor. Der riesige Tropensturm dürfte in der Nähe der Hafenstadt Busan auf Land treffen.

Typhoon Hinnamnor is poised to sweep over most of South Korea on Tuesday, forcing flight cancellations, suspensions of businesses and closures of schools, as the country raises its typhoon-alert to its highest level.

Hinnamnor is expected to make landfall near South Korea’s port city of Busan early on Tuesday. On Monday, Shanghai’s Yangshan port in China had to halt operations as the storm swept past.

The typhoon is travelling northwards at 24 kilometres an hour, with wind speeds in excess of 200km/h. On August 30, Hinnamnor became the first category 5 storm of the year (on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale).

In South Korea, no casualties have been reported so far, although more than 100 people have been evacuated and at least 11 facilities damaged by floods.

As well as China and South Korea, Hinnamnor is also expected to impact Japan and southeastern Russia.
