The wide and disorganizated center of Tropical Storm Nakri can be seen spinning over the Yellow Sea on Saturday.
At least 10 people were killed when Tropical Storm Nakri swamped South Korea. Seven of the victims perished when their car was swept away by floodwaters.

Nakri attained tropical storm force for only a few hours, and had weakened to a depression before it made landfall Sunday on the country's Yellow Sea coast.

But it was still strong enough to uproot trees and wash out bridges in four southern provinces, which left more than 13,000 households without electricity for several hours.

Officials say more than 8,641 acres of farmland were flooded and many homes and fishing boats were severely damaged.
