South Korea was hit with severe flooding on Monday as Typhoon Hagupit prepares to hit the region later this week.

At least twelve people have died and 13 others are missing. On Monday morning the Han River spilled into the streets of Seoul.

In the northwestern section of South Korea, four factory workers were rescued after a landslide in Pyeongtaek.

Typhoon Hagupit exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility.

North of the island of Taiwan, Hagupit intensified into a Category 1 typhoon. Typhoon Hagupit also formed a large eye in its center as it approached China.

Hagupit made landfall in Wenzhou, China, with winds of 135 km/h and pressure of 975 mbar.
