A strong rain accompanied by a gust of pour centered on the central region. A heavy rain warning was once given to Paju and Yeoncheon, the northern regions of Gyeonggi Province, and the water of the Imjin River near the ceasefire also surged. Reporters from the Imjin River Gunnam Dam are connected.
Reporter Cho Yoon-ha, how are you doing now?
Yes, I've been here at the Gunnam Dam on the Imjin River since yesterday (1st), and it rained a lot all day, and now the heavy rain has faded and the rain is weak.
Once the heavy rain warning was issued, the Yeoncheon and Paju districts have now been lowered by heavy rain warnings.
As rain continues to continue in the northern part of Gyeonggi, the Imjin River Gunnam Dam releases 7 of 13 gates and discharges water.
When it is not normally raining, it discharges about 30 tons per second. Currently, it discharges about 780 tons per second.
An official at the Gunnam Dam said that the floodgates will open additionally when the river level near the northern part of Gyeonggi increases due to heavy rain, but it is unlikely that there will be much rain at this time, so it is unlikely that the discharge will be increased.
<Anchor> As the
water level of the Imjin River increased, there were instructions to evacuate nearby residents?
Yes, it is. Due to the heavy rain in the northern part of Gyeonggi, the water level of the nearby river, including the Imjin River, continues to rise.
As heavy rains hit the North Hwanghae Province near the northern part of Gyeonggi Province, the water level at the northernmost point of the Imjin River has risen to 1.5m beyond the evacuation level of 1m.
As a result, Gyeonggi-do sent warning letters to neighbors to evacuate around the river from early yesterday.
The level of the Biryong Bridge, located downstream of the Imjin River, is also about 2.6m, which is more than three times higher than usual.
Now that I have entered a lull, I think it would be better to refrain from unnecessary external activities as much as possible for safety.
