    Though the brunt of the rainfall from Typhoon Soulik was over Taiwan, China and the southern islands of Japan, some rain from Soulik will even cause flooding problems into the Korean Peninsula early next week.

    Soulik made landfall on Friday as a strong typhoon in Taiwan and brought over 3 feet of rain to parts of the island. This rain associated with Soulik pushed into China by Saturday and brought some flooding and mudslides to eastern China.

    Soulik's remains will move northeastward into North and South Korea by Monday and Tuesday. Though the extreme rainfall that Taiwan saw will be in the past, rainfall amounts of over 4 inches are still possible as the storms moves through.

    The rainfall from Soulik will combine with the rainfall that is occurring this weekend over the Korean Peninsula. Rainfall totals through early Sunday morning, local time, are already over 3 inches in parts of central South Korea for the past 24 hours.

    Soulik Onshore in China, Flooding Rain Continues

    The heavy rainfall continues to occur and remains a threat for major flooding this week. Seoul, South Korea, had 8.58 inches of rain in 24 hours ending early Saturday morning, local time. Other locations across the peninsula had more than 4 inches through the weekend. This is setting the stage for some major flooding with rainfall from Soulik pushing northward.

    The rain will push north a bit, more into North Korea, for Sunday and Monday. By Tuesday, we will see the flooding rainfall pushing into South Korea again as the front sags southward. This may again cause some major flooding and devastation for both North and South Korea.
