Typhoon Chanthu is on its way out of Korean territory, causing no major damage to regions beyond Jeju Island. 

The Busan office of the Korea Meteorological Administration(KMA) said on Friday that it lifted a typhoon advisory for the southern port city at 5 p.m., although a strong wind advisory remains in place. 

Cumulative precipitation for Busan on Friday was slightly less than 50 millimeters, with only five minor typhoon-induced damages reported from city dwellers. 

The KMA’s Ulsan office also lifted a typhoon advisory at 5 p.m., joining other major cities and counties in South Korea’s western and southern coastal areas that did so earlier. 

The 14th typhoon of the year dumped a massive amount of rain on Jeju, inciting flood damage in the early hours of Friday when the storm was closest to the island. The KMA lifted a typhoon alert issued in the three sea areas near Jeju as of 4 p.m., with Chanthu expected to pass through the Korea Strait before midnight.
