SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea is surveying the impact of one of the most powerful typhoons to ever hit the Korean Peninsula, but the country appears to have escaped widespread damage.

The country’s interior ministry says it is reviewing the damage from Typhoon Lingling and engaging in recovery work. The storm killed three people, damaged buildings and knocked out power to about 161,640 homes.

Typhoon Lingling swept along South Korea’s west coast on Saturday before making a landfall in North Korea. North Korea hasn’t publicized possible typhoon-related damage.

The storm was moving near Russia’s Vladivostok as of Sunday morning.
