Typhoon Lan, the 21st Tropical storm this year, is heading towards the Korean peninsula. Luckily, it is currently expected to travel just to the east of Jeju.
However, according to the Meteorological Agency, due to the typhoon's strong winds, the waters around Jeju are expected to be very high around Oct. 24.
The typhoon is currently a normal and medium but it is expected to turn into a very strong and medium typhoon over the next couple of days.
Jeju has been lucky with regards to typhoons so far this year and hasn't had a direct hit. The closest the island has come to being in the path of a typhoon was Typhoon Talim in September.
However, this typhoon had a last minute change of direction and other than some wind and rain, Jeju didn't really feel much of its effects.
