Typhoon warning lifted on Jeju Island as Neoguri heads to Japan Updated: 2014-07-10 07:01:48 KST

The typhoon warning on Korea's southernmost resort island of Jeju has been lifted as Typhoon Neoguri (nog-ger-ree) makes its way north towards Japan.
Neoguri (nog-ger-ree) is expected to make landfall on Kyushu this Thursday morning but residents on Jeju will see strong winds and some more rain for the rest of the morning.
Waves of up to eight meters high have been reported along Korea's southern and southeastern coasts.
Neoguri (nog-ger-ree) has now weakened to a tropical storm but officials in Japan say it could still bring heavy rain and violent winds to eastern Japan, including Tokyo by Friday.
Kyusu has already seen record amounts of rain over the past week and warnings for floods, strong winds and landslides are already in effect.
