VLADIVOSTOK, August 29 (Itar-Tass) — Typhoon Bolaven hit the entire Sea of Japan (East Sea) on Wednesday, with over 100 schooners from the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea taking shelter in the Olga Gulf in Russia's Primorsky (maritime) Territory. The ships were operating at a distance of 20 to 30 miles from the Russian shores when a heavy storm began.

Wind velocity in Olga Gulf is 6-8 metres per second so far, whereas gusts of wind along the rest of the coast mount up to 25-30 m/sec.

In Russia's Far East, the typhoon is raging in the Amur Region, the Jewish Autonomous Region, Primorsky and Khabarovsk Territories.
