Tropical Storm Tembin
« on: August 28, 2012, 10:16:42 pm »
Not sure how many of you have heard, but there's another storm coming Korea's way this Thursday. It's not going to be as strong as Typhoon Bolaven but I heard it's going to be pretty windy. Just a heads up. It's supposed to make its way up to Seoul by Friday afternoon.

Tembin seriously can't make up its mind... it's already been through Taiwan twice!  It's kind of exciting to have all these typhoons and storms... just so long as people aren't dying. (^_^)

Hopefully it does the same as Bolaven and doesn't dump any rain on Incheon.

Is it weird that I want it to come through my area?  I haven't seen a decent storm since I got here and yesterday was sad - all it did was drizzle...

since this one is actually going through korea, instead of only scraping, i'd say the likelihood of it being worse is high.

however, i suspect we'll just get some heavy rain and wind. not worth writing home about.

Yeah, the map I saw had it going right across the peninsula, and it looked like it would directly hit Seoul and surrounding areas.  So the damage on the ground could be worse, even if the storm category is lower.

It's supposed to start Friday afternoon for Seoul, right?  Hopefully most of it will happen Friday night/Saturday so there won't be another fiasco about teachers coming in during typhoons, then being sent out to drive home in them again after a couple of pointless hours.

No I think it's meant to hit Jeju in the early hours tomorrow, then spread across the rest of Korea throughout the day - should be in Seoul/Gyeonggi by tomorrow afternoon/evening. And then cleared by Friday morning.

Looked at the wunderground this morning, think it is disappearing very quickly now, so no need to worry.
