About 3,600 properties have been confirmed to be damaged due to the fifth-strongest winds ever recorded among the typhoons that have hit the peninsula.

Over 14,000 hectares of farm land have been affected and tens of thousands of homes also suffered power outages, with hundreds of passenger flights at major airports canceled. (Yonhap)
