Typhoon Hits Cities in Asia

Typhoon Sanba came ashore South Korea Monday, forcing the evacuation of tens of thousands of people and whipping Jeju Island with heavy rains and high winds.

Sanba, with wind speeds of up to 93 miles per hour and unleashing heavy rains, was moving northeastward at 21 miles per hour.

The Jeju Island, which was the landing spot of Typhoon Bolaven, was again the main target of Sanba's fury that included rains of more than 3 inches per hour. Already Mount Halla on the island has received about 23 inches of rain.

Dozens of residents have suffered flood damage, and more than 10,000 households were left without electricity, the National Emergency Management Agency said.
