Typhoon Haishen: UAE citizens in Korea urged to practice caution

The UAE Embassy in Seoul has called on its citizens to practice caution as Typhoon Haishen approaches South Korea.

Officials say that the current storm may have a greater impact on the country than Typhoon Maysak. 

People have been advised to follow all instructions issued by Korean authorities and to contact the embassy or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs call centre in case of an emergency.

According to the East Asian country's weather agency, Typhoon Haishen is currently making its way towards South Korea after slamming through southern Japan.

The storm is headed towards Busan, South Korea's second-largest city.

More than 300 flights from 10 airports were reportedly cancelled and some train services have been suspended due to the storm.
