Typhoon Haishen has touched down in South Korea after slamming through southern Japan. The storm, carrying top sustained winds of up to 144 kilometres (90 miles) per hour, was headed north toward South Korea’s second largest city of Busan

It is said that the typhoon is categorised as a Category 4 storm which means well-built framed houses can suffer severe damage with loss of most of the roof structure and exterior walls.

Typhoon Haishen is likely to resume its rapid intensification and is expected to become a Super Typhoon, potentially with near or even higher winds than 130 knots (150 mph).

According to BBC, The typhoon caused a loss of power across hundreds of thousands of homes in Japan, though initial assessments suggest it did less damage than feared.

Thirty-two people were injured, including four who sustained cuts after the glass windows of an evacuation centre were blown in

More than 340 flights and 114 shipping routes around the country were cancelled, while nearly 6,000 schools switched to remote learning or cut class hours.

The damage associated with strong typhoons include wind damage, water damage, high tide damage and wave damage.

As reported by The Guardian, Warnings that the storm could be one of the most destructive on record prompted many people to spend the night at evacuation centres and hotels on Kyushu and the southern island of Okinawa

Typhoon Haishen comes just days after Typhoon Maysak left at least two people dead and thousands without power on the Korean peninsula.
