It brought damages into lives and properties. The storm pursued a route into 2) Vietnam and Cambodia as it continues its earthly rampages. Then came the 3) earthquake with tsunami in Samoa and 4) American Samoa. Next was the earthquake in 5) Padanga, Indonesia. This is long before the 6) next typhoon shot coming down code named Peping. There is one more 7) low pressure after this as reported by the weather bureau.
