Oh, how you were such a bane for me.
More like a pain in the butt. Typhoon Kompasu made landfall in Korea in the wee hours of September 2, 2010, and proceed to to lash the peninsula with wind and rain.
It took down 100+ trees on base, taking down power lines, crashing on cars, and one or two houses. There were 4 deaths reported in Korea due to Kompasu, including an elderly man killed by a flying roof tile.
However, the power was out for nearly 4 days, but that was just the embassy housing area on base. Other parts of Seoul were just fine. I guess that’s the downfall of having so many darn trees around.
