Six Dead, Four Missing as Typhoon Hits S.Korea - Official

Date: 17-Sep-07

Five were killed and four were missing in the resort island
of Cheju as it was battered by typhoon Nari, whose name means a
lily in Korean language, an official at South Korea's National
Emergency Management Agency told Reuters by telephone.

One woman was also found dead as a house collapsed in
Jangheung, a coast county southwest of Seoul, added the official
who asked not to be identified.

He said the death toll may rise and South Korea's Yonhap
news agency was already reporting 10 people confirmed dead and
six reported missing because of the typhoon.

Local television stations were showing images of overturned
trucks and uprooted trees in areas hit by the typhoon.
