Bavi, the season's eighth typhoon, is one of this year's most powerful storms. It ripped through the resort island of Jeju and other southern regions on Wednesday, knocking out power, flooding roads and toppling trees. The typhoon reached waters off Gunsan, about 270 kilometers south of Seoul, at 10:30 p.m. local time and was moving north with the maximum wind speed of 40 meters per second. The typhoon is forecasted to hit Seoul at around 5 a.m. Thursday then expected to move upward to Hwanghae Province in North Korea. Weather officials predict the storm could bring strong gusts that could break the record set by Typhoon Maemi in 2003. Typhoon warnings are issued in most areas of the country.
