After five days, the snow has finally stopped falling on Jeju. This means that all the snow warnings issued across the island have been canceled.
According to the Jeju Provincial Meteorological Administration on Feb. 07, the heavy snow warning, which was carried out at 4:30 a.m. on the eastern part and northern part of Jeju Island, were canceled at 8 a.m..
The Meteorological Administration said "The snow at the coastal areas has nearly stopped falling, and the snow in the mountain areas are gradually weakening. The snow will stop this morning while the afternoon will be cloudy.”
At present, the amount of snow that has fallen in Jeju City is 14.3cm, Ara-dong 52.1cm, Yusuam 25.7cm, and 22.5cm in Seongsan. The observation devices have broken down because of the huge amount of snowfall in Eorimok.
