Storm In South Korea
Hinnamnor made landfall near Geoje, South Korea, around 5 a.m. Tuesday morning, local time, with sustained winds of 89 mph (143 km/h).The deadly storm left roughly 80,000 residents without power across the Korean Peninsula after it spread swaths of heavy rain and damaging winds gusts. At least three deaths were blamed on the storm in South Korea, but officials there said storm preparations helped minimize the death toll. Hinnamnor, which peaked as a powerful super typhoon and roamed the western Pacific since late August, was downgraded to a tropical rainstorm as it lost strength Tuesday. Portions of southern Japan were also slammed with flooding rainfall and powerful winds early this week as the storm pushed from the East China Sea into the Sea of Japan.
