SEOUL, South Korea - South Korea says a typhoon that battered the country this week has killed seven people and left three others missing.

Typhoon Chaba caused strong winds and heavy rain in southeastern areas in South Korea on Tuesday and Wednesday. South Korean officials say the typhoon has later dissipated after moving to the waters off the east coast.

The Ministry of Public Safety and Security says the six dead include one who fell from a breakwater and another who fell from the roof of a house.

It says the typhoon also left 200 others homeless and inundated hundreds of houses, shops and factories in the areas.

Another typhoon, Lionrock, hit a remote area of North Korea in late August, causing floods that are estimated to have killed more than 130 people.
