Papiroon’s Projected Track
As of 1200 on June 29,2018, Papiron’s projected track is toward the north-northwest across the Ryukyu Islands, then toward the Korean Peninsula later in the weekend and early next week. Impacts along the path will include flooding rainfall and the potential for damaging wind. Heavy rain will fall across South Korea in advance of Prapiroon, so any heavy rainfall from the cyclone itself will worsen ongoing flood concerns. It is forecast that as many as 500,000 customers in Jeju island will lose power as the terminal nodes on the Korean peninsula that supply Jeju will be exposed to flooding and strong Tropical Storm strength winds.
