Typhoon Bolaven has killed 48 people in North Korea and left more than 50 others injured or missing.
The North was still reeling from floods in June and July that killed 169 people.
It is difficult to independently verify the casualty figures from North Korea.
Typhoon Bolaven travelled up the western side of the Korean peninsula after causing transport chaos but limited damage on the Japanese island of Okinawa.
In North Korea, the typhoon damaged thousands of homes and buildings and at least 50,000 hectares of farmland.
