Next, we will look at the situation of the Imjin River where the flood advisory was issued in the past. It rained nearly a week and upstream of the river, so while opening the dam gate on the North side, the Imjin River Gunnam Dam was once the highest. I'll call a reporter out there.
Reporter Min Kyung-ho, the level of the Imjin River would have to go down a bit, but the rain seems to have stopped.
It was said that it was raining until the early afternoon, and sometimes thick raindrops fell, and after 4 pm, the rain stopped and the sun broke through the clouds.
As the rain ceased, it reached a record high yesterday (5 days), and the water level that had remained at 40 meters until dawn today gradually decreased, reaching 35.33 meters a while ago.
Discharges have also reached 13,000 tonnes per second at the dawn of today, but are now down to 8,000 tonnes.
Residents who evacuated, even if they went home again, there will be some rain in the future and still be uneasy.
Yes, it's just that we have passed the Hanbibi, but it's too early to be relieved.
Even if the water level is lower, it is 4m higher than the 31m water level that is the standard for starting flood control.
The water level downstream of the Imjin River, where water from several tributaries gathers, is still high.
Currently, the water level of the Paju Biryong Bridge is at the alert level of 11m, and the flood warning from yesterday afternoon is still maintained.
As concerns over the flooding of the Imjin River increased, the evacuation order for residents in Paju and Yeoncheon was issued yesterday. I can't.
President Moon Jae-in comforted the victims in search of temporary refugees in Paju.
