Super Typhoon Brings High Winds and 3 Feet of Rain to South Korea

HeadlineSep 06, 2022

The typhoon dumped more than three feet of water in some regions and forced a nuclear power plant offline. At its peak, the typhoon packed winds equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane, and experts say South Korea narrowly avoided a much worse disaster.
