Typhoon Nakri turns deadly as 7 family members killed in vehicle accident Updated: 2014-08-03 15:42:27 KST

Typhoon Nakri flooded Cheongdo Valley in Gyeongsangbuk-do province on Sunday, killing all seven members of a family traveling in the same vehicle.
Although the worst has passed, wind and rain are expected in Seoul and the central part of the country this week.
The typhoon pounded Jeju Island on Saturday with heavy rains and gale force winds that briefly cut power to some 16-hundred households.
More than 200 international and domestic flights at Jeju International Airport were cancelled.
Across the southern part of the country, there were reports of destroyed buildings, broken traffic lights and fallen trees.
And now we have another storm brewing in the form of Super Typhoon Halong.
It is expected to hit southern Japan later in the week with winds of 250 kilometers per hour, and Korea and northeastern China could also be in the storm's path.
