According to the China Meteorological Administration, Typhoon Bavi, on August 27 at around 8:30 a.m. BJT, made a landfall on the coast of North Pyongan province in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), a region near the China-DPRK border.
This is the eighth typhoon of this year. As per the previous forecasts, it was likely that the typhoon will also hit northeast China’s Liaoning Province, following which local Chinese authorities geared up in high alert to embrace the typhoon.
The typhoon that has already ripped off roofs and knocked out power supply to more than 1,600 households in South Korea, formed off the east coast of southeast China’s Taiwan region last week, following which China’s Central Meteorological Observatory declared red alerts for Bavi.
Typhoons are rarely seen in the northeast region of the country as compared to the southeast China’s coastal areas.
