Japan and South Korea Brace for Typhoon Haishen


The Hurricane & Typhoon seasons have started worldwide, with civilians living on coastlines having to be evacuated from their homes regularly. This was once again seen throughout Japan, with 200+ thousand citizens being informed to evacuate their areas amid an approaching storm. Named Typhoon Haishen, it’ll make landfall in Japan by September 6th. It’ll bring locals storm surges, landslides, heavy downpours, and wind speeds reaching 160km/h. It’ll mark one of the more notable Typhoon’s Japan has seen in recent years.

Kyushu Island off the coast of Japan will see the first violent storm surges on Typhoon Haishen. The people of Kyushu were evacuated on September 5th, with the Japanese Government not permitting these citizens to remain in their homes. Concerns for physical damage across the area is at Category Five. After Kyushu Island & Japan battle the destructive forces of Typhoon Haishen, the surging storm will move towards South Korea.

South Korea’s government isn’t taking any risks with the coming storm, which will make landfall by September 7th. Typhoon Haishen prompted the South Korean Government to close educational facilities, factories, businesses, airports, and train stations. There is a notable concern for the South Korean Government & their people, who faced Typhoon Maysak days-ago. This storm surge was recorded as South Korea’s worst since the 1990s.

The South Korean Weather Agency won’t issue severe warnings for Typhoon Haishen. Government officials & local experts believe that its damage won’t reach similar levels of Typhoon Maysak. Japan will take the onslaught of damage, and likely lower the severe forces associated with Haishen. Warnings for floodwaters are being issued throughout South Korea’s coastal region, with low-lying areas expected to experience surging tides.

Stay Indoors

Avoiding the possible loss of life is the Japanese Government’s main focus going into the storm, knowing that their damage will be similar to what South Korea faced with Typhoon Maysak. Designated shelters will house 200+ thousand citizens throughout Japan, including the entire city of Goto – Nagasaki Region. Typhoon Haishen is expected to level-out Goto City, leaving nothing in its wake after the storm has receded. It’s an area known for low-lying plains & long beaches that connect to the Sea of Japan.
