VLADIVOSTOK, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - Typhoon Soulik has lost some of its strength and turned into an ordinary tropical cyclone, but it still poses a threat for residents of Russia’s Primorsky Territory.
The former typhoon is slowly drifting northward and northeastward to the Yellow Sea, the head of the Primorsky Territory hydrometeorological service, Boris Kubai, told reporters on Monday. There it will face an atmospheric front from the northwest and will bring heavy rain to North Korea at first and then to Primorye.
“North Korea will receive the strongest blow. Primorye will have precipitation two times less, but anyway rains will remain very heavy,” Kubai said.
The heaviest rains will hit the southern regions of the Primorsky Territory overnight on July 16. The rains will be accompanied by strong wind gusts.
