Still reeling from the effects of one typhoon, the Korean peninsula only has a few days until the next makes landfall.
Korea's weather agency says Typhoon Halong , currently positioned near the Philippines, is moving in a northwesterly direction and could hit Korea's southern island of Jeju by this weekend.
Halong, recently upgraded to a typhoon, is packing winds as strong as 250 kilometers an hour and could also have an effect on southern Japan.
It's the northwest Pacific's third super typhoon of the year, and follows Typhoon Nakri, which hit Korea's southern peninsula on Sunday, killing at least seven people in the eastern province of Gyeongsangbuk-do, and damaging several buildings.
