The operations of two reactors at the Wolsong Nuclear Power Plant in Gyeongju, North Gyeongsang Province, were interrupted apparently due to Typhoon Haishen on Monday morning. The Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Company said the turbine generators for the No. Two and No. Three pressurized heavy water reactors automatically stopped at 8:38 and 9:18 a.m. due to what appears to be a malfunction in the power system. One official said the exact cause needs to be verified, but the typhoon appears to have caused problems with the power distribution line.
