    Typhoon Jangmi, this year's fifth, died without causing serious damage in Korea on Monday.

    A typhoon alert was lifted at 1 p.m. for Jeju Island, where Jangmi had made landfall. Heavy rainstorms still hit Busan and South Gyeongsang Province, which lay along its path, and a daily average of 16 mm of rain fell in Tongyeong, 35 mm in Geoje, and 8 mm in Busan until late afternoon.

    But the typhoon did not cause as much damage as feared because it quickly lost its force.

    Heavy rains will nonetheless continue across the country on Tuesday, with more than 200 mm of rain expected for some parts of North Jeolla Province, the Korea Meteorological Administration forecast.
