Some flooding and damage has been reported on the Korean Peninsula in the wake of Tropical Storm Khanun.
One person was killed in South Korea when parts of a house collapsed amid heavy rain and high wind, the Korea Times website said on Thursday.
By late Thursday, local time, Khanun was a weakening tropical depression aimed for the east coast of North Korea.
Hundreds of flights were grounded as Khanun made its way northward, passing over the city of Seoul. City streets saw some flooding, the Times said.
Rainfall in the area was at least 3 to 5 inches, according to weather data available to AccuWeather.com.
Even higher rainfall was observed in North Korea, where Sariwon registered more than 8 inches.
Water releases from the Hwangang Dam along the North-South border prompted campers in the south to evacuate, the Times said.
Khanun will dissipate over the western Sea of Japan.
Dry and sunny conditions will continue in San Francisco for the official start to winter and the Christmas holiday.
