A typhoon hit South Korea’s second-largest city on Monday, hours after the storm skirted southwestern Japan, where it carved a trail of destruction and left four people missing. It is the second typhoon to hit in the past week.

Typhoon Haishen struck the Korean Peninsula in the Ulsan area, just north of the large port city of Busan. Around 37,000 houses experienced power outages in Ulsan, and the typhoon also knocked out power in Hyundai Motor plants in Ulsan, according to the semiofficial Yonhap news agency.

The typhoon is expected to weaken to a tropical storm by the end of the day on Monday near the northern tip of North Korea, the South’s weather agency said.

Earlier, Haishen battered southwestern Japan, leaving hundreds of thousands of homes without power. Four people were missing in Miyazaki prefecture on the island of Kyushu after a landslide swept several buildings into a river, public broadcaster NHK reported, citing officials.
