At least one person was killed when Typhoon Maysak brought powerful winds and heavy rain to South Korea in the early hours of September 3.
Winds of up to 170 kilometers per hour (105 miles per hour) were recorded as the storm hit the port city of Busan, leading to the reported destruction of 800 facilities, trees and vehicles.
One woman was killed in Busan when her window was shattered, according to local news reports.
Korea’s weather bureau estimated at least 500 millimetres of rain fell at a rate of up to 100 millimetres per hour on the island of Jeju, which was the first part of Korea to be hit by the storm on September 2.
While the Korean peninsula was being hit by Typhoon Maysak, another storm system formed in the Pacific Ocean called Typhoon Haishen. The storm was due to blow through Japan and hit South Korea around September 6. Credit: park._.h via Storyful
