<Anchor> In the

heavy rain, Busan flooded the rivers across the city. Houses, factories, and vehicles were flooded and over 50 residents in the apartments had to be evacuated.

This is KNN Jung Ki-hyeong.


Dongcheon crossing the city center of Busan overflowed.

Beyond the roads, houses and welfare centers, malls and apartments were also submerged.

I prepared for the heavy rain forecast, but to no avail.

[Lee Eun-sook/Senior Welfare Director, Jaseong University: The water overflowed just like last time. We had our own preparations. Sandbags piled higher, but more water came in.]

Dongcheon, Busan, flooded for the first time on the 10th.

At that time, 140 houses and factories and 220 vehicles were flooded.

The damage was high, overlapping with high tide, and this is also true.

About 50 people in the apartments were evacuated to welfare centers.

It's time for the rain to drop and the water level to drop a bit, but it rises to my knees.

A pile of sand was built to prepare for it, but Dongcheon overflowed again.

During the first flooding, the water barrier at the site of water quality improvement, which was pointed out as the cause, was reduced, and the failed pumping station was also repaired, but it could not prevent flooding.

[Resident inhabitants: (10 days of heavy rain) came and went for 30 minutes, but now the water keeps flowing in and out for an hour, so the (damage) should be considered worse.]

In Busan, not only Dongcheon but also Sujeongcheon were flooded, and the water level did not go down overnight, making it difficult to count recovery and damage.
