(Worthy News) - Typhoon winds toppled trees, grounded planes and left thousands of South Korean homes without electricity Saturday as a powerful storm system brushed up against the Korean Peninsula.
Strong winds and rain from Typhoon Lingling caused power outages in more than 31,000 homes on the southern resort island of Jeju and in southern mainland regions, South Korea’s Ministry of the Interior and Safety said. The ministry said there were no immediate reports of typhoon-related injuries.
The typhoon was passing 110 kilometers (68 miles) west of the central mainland city of Seosan as of 12:20 p.m. Saturday local time, moving north at 42 kilometers (26 miles) per hour with winds of up to 133 kilometers (83 miles) per hour, the Korea Meteorological Association said.
