SEOUL - A typhoon with winds of up to 170 kmh buffeted South Korea's west coast on Tuesday, leaving four dead and a dozen people missing after two Chinese fishing vessels capsized.

Typhoon Bolaven was expected to eventually make landfall in flood ravaged North Korea late on Tuesday, hitting already damaged farmlands as the country struggles to feed its 24 million population.

Emergency authorities and refiners reported little damage from Bolaven as it tracked through the Yellow Sea, dumping heavy rains on the southern island of Jeju and along the Korean peninsula's coastal regions.

China's Meteorological Administration issued warnings of possible flooding in the coming days that could affect corn and soy crops in parts of its three northeastern provinces that produce about 30 percent of corn output and 40 percent of soy.
