A strong Typhoon, Wutip (JTWC Category 3), directly struck the Yongle Atoll on 29 September 2013, causing 62 deaths and sinking dozens of ships in the Yongle Atoll maritime area, Xisha Islands, South China Sea. Surveys on coral reefs at Yongle Atoll were conducted using scuba diving before (July 2013) and after (8days) the typhoon sweep.

The typhoon caused significant damage to reef associated depths on the passage of the atoll, where currents...
