According to meteorologists, Typhoon Bolaven approached early on Monday the southern section of the Yellow Sea. “We have a possibility nowadays to calculate the trajectory of the typhoon basing on up-to-date forecast models designed in Russia, Japan, the United States, Great Britain and Germany,” Kubai said adding that according to all these models the typhoon will be moving over northeastern Chinese provinces towards Khabarovsk.
Moderate or heavy rains are expected in Primorye. “The most unpleasant thing we may get is gale-force or even hurricane winds in Vladivostok,” he said. In this situation one can expect uprooted trees and billboards as well as collapsed ramshackle buildings, he added.
