Three Dead as South Korea Cleans Up after Typhoon Lingling

SEOUL South Korea was dealing on Sunday with the aftermath of powerful Typhoon Lingling, which resulted in three deaths, hundreds of canceled flights and power blackouts that affected some 160,000 homes, according to Yonhap news agency.

A woman in her seventies died in the town of Boryeong (140 kilometers south of Seoul) after being knocked down by winds of more than 140 kilometers per hour.

In Incheon, west of Seoul, a man died after a wall collapsed on him, and in Paju, north of the capital, another died when he was struck by the panel of a roof that dislodged in the wind.

More than 400 flights were canceled at various airports in the country due to the passage of the typhoon on Saturday, which also left some 160,000 homes in the dark.

South Korean state power company KEPCO reported that 99% of these homes had their power restored by early Sunday.

After passing through North Korea (where the effects are unknown for now), the 13th typhoon of the season was at 9 am local time (0000 GMT) over the northeastern Chinese province of Heilongjiang, now a tropical storm, according to the Korean Meteorological Administration.

Lingling was the most powerful typhoon to hit the Korean Peninsula since Bolaven, which in 2012 left 15 dead in South Korea and caused damages of more than $500 million.
