PYONGYANG, July 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Floods caused by a typhoon in North Korea have taken a heavy toll of lives and caused heavy damages.
Eighty eight people died, and 134 received serious injuries, the North Korean central news agency reported on Saturday.
The typhoon, which raged in the country's territory from July 18 to 24, most severely hit the province of Pyongan-Namdo, destroying about 5,000 houses and leaving almost 63,000 people without homes.
Large fields of rice, corn and wheat crops were covered with water in some provinces. About 300 public buildings, including hospitals and schools, were damaged. Sixty industrial sites were flooded, the agency reported.
