Next, let's take a look at the northern part of Gyeonggi where it rained quite a bit today (4th). Reporter Kang Min-woo, who reports on the damage situation and restoration work in Pocheon and Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi-do, is currently on the Gunnam Dam upstream of the Imjin River.

Reporter Kang Min-woo, there may have been a lot of rain in North Korea recently. How is the level of the Imjin River near North Korea now?


The Imjin River Gunnam Dam, where I am now, now opens all 13 gates and discharges over 1,400 tons of water per second.

Compared to the usual discharge of water in and around 30 tons, it is very much.

However, compared to yesterday's release of more than 4,000 tons of water per second due to the impact of the North Korean Yellow River Dam on the upper stream of the Imjin River, the number has decreased significantly.

The water level of Pilseung Bridge, which is directly affected by the North Korea's release of the Hwanggang Dam, has maintained around 3m below 7.5m, the level of interest in responding to the crisis, but is still at ease.

There may be additional discharge of the Hwanggang Dam, as North Korea has issued a limited express warning regarding heavy rains and it will rain up to 500mm in the areas of Pyongan and Hwanghae.

The Ministry of Unification said North Korea, including yesterday, discharged water three times last month without informing South Korea.

In 2009, North Korea agreed to release water from the Hwanggang Dam without prior notice, and six Koreans have died, and agreed to notify them in advance, but this has not been observed since 2013.


Reporter Kang Min-woo interviewed the recovery site in the northern part of Gyeonggi Province today, but I was worried that the rain would continue to cause some trouble.

<Reporter> In

today's northern regions of Gyeonggi, such as Yeoncheon and Pocheon, Gyeonggi Province, local heavy rains continued.

However, it was relatively in a state of heavy rain.

As a result, it was in the midst of recovery that the place that had suffered much damage due to heavy rains.

Let's look at the recovery work site I went to today.

--- In

Yeoncheon, where yesterday morning the flooded flooding caused more rain than the capacity of the Chatancheon drainage pumping station, it began to recover.

Military officers and villagers work together to remove furniture that has been wet.

[Resident victims: This is not a joke. There is no fat. There was nothing to deliver, now.]

Another home that was flooded, all the wet stuff was taken out.

We took out all the wet appliances and household appliances, and now the house is empty.

The submerged car center is busy removing the oil before draining the underground water.

[Kim Ki-dae / President of Car Center, Avoiding Floods: (What are you working on?) I'm pulling out the oil with a non-woven fabric. I'm doing the second day. I think I have to do it until tomorrow and the day after tomorrow… .]

First of all, we are beginning to recover from the damage, but today in Yeoncheon, a heavy rain of more than 180mm fell a day.

I'm recovering right now, but I'm just anxious because I don't know when I'm going to suffer again.

In Pocheon, Gyeonggi Province, where the landslide warning has been issued, the operation of building turrets to prevent landslides is in full swing.

Residents living beneath the hillsides for development were asleep in fear of landslides.

[Yoo Soon-ok / Pocheon-si, Gyeonggi-do: What's all this in the world? (Paining) My arm hurts. I've come all the way forward, dirt. This should be once or twice. I can't sleep because I'm anxious.] The

Central Disaster Safety Response Headquarters warned residents of the mountainous valleys until the end of the rainy season as the ground weakened due to continued heavy rain.
