High importanceEdit

@Hurricanehink: The reason why I marked this as high was the $2.55 billion in damage to ≥364,000 hectares of crops and ≥36,000 houses + over 44 deaths. This may be seen here. Another 31 died after ships sank elsewhere (I know that is on the season article). Keep in mind this storm also affected numerous other areas. NoahTalk 11:18, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

There was no mention of the damage figure when I reassessed it. Let’s see where the damage/death toll ends up. The storm is very recent. Hurricanehink mobile (talk) 12:07, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
@Hurricanehink:Keep in mind Mangkhut had high importance with no damage total and less confirmed deaths then Lekima currently has. Someone with more time needs to go through and fix up this article as this is a very important storm. NoahTalk 12:34, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
@Hurricanehink: I have seen estimates of $7.4 billion now. I note relief web states "Nearly 13,000 houses collapsed and some 119,000 were damaged, while 996,000 hectares of crops were affected by the typhoon". This would make Lekima the second costliest in China. NoahTalk 19:19, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
Yea, I agree with high-importance now. It seems like a likely retirement case. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 19:21, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
