Typhoon Chanthu lashed South Korea's southern resort island of Jeju overnight with heavy rain and high winds, flooding roads and farmland.

While the storm did not make landfall, it got very close around 7 a.m. Friday, passing 60 kilometers south-southeast of the city of Seogwipo.

The Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters said there were reports of structural damage, downed trees and a streetlight as well as submerged streets, but no injuries.

Around two dozen morning flights to and from Jeju were canceled along with 48 ferries on 29 routes.

Typhoon warnings remain in effect for Jeju and parts of South Jeolla Province, with advisories issued for Busan, and areas in the South Jeolla and Gyeongsang provinces.

The national weather agency said southern regions could get up to 80 more millimeters of rain throughout the day.

The 14th typhoon of the season has moved eastward along the Korea Strait and is expected to hit southwestern Japan over the weekend.
