Industry Ministry of S. Korea Prepares for Typhoon Khanun


On Wednesday, South Korea’s industry ministry declared that it is examining essential industrial and energy facilities to guard against potential harm from Typhoon Khanun, which is projected to hit the southern coast this week.

Industry Minister Lee Chang-yang remarked during an emergency meeting that “the ministry is responsible for a variety of infrastructure that is closely associated with the daily lives of the public, including electricity and gas facilities, so all organizations must be prepared for the typhoon to avoid potential damage.”

The industry ministry said it has implemented an emergency response system to repair facilities quickly in case of any damage.

The government’s Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters raised its disaster readiness alert level to the highest level of three from two at 5 p.m. the previous day in response to the typhoon’s impending landfall.

Ahead of the arrival of Typhoon Khanun, ships are moved onto land at a port in Ulsan, which is 299 kilometers southeast of Seoul, on Aug. 8, 2023. (Yonhap)
