<Anchor> On the
east coast of Gangwon-do, before the typhoon even landed, heavy rain of more than 100 mm per hour poured, causing damage one after another.
City areas including Sokcho were submerged in water and sediment spilled, causing the highway to stop operating.
Reporter Cho Jae-geun, Gangwon-do is still before the typhoon, so why did it rain so much?
Yes, I am in a place called Hajodae, Hyeonbuk-myeon, Yangyang-gun, Gangwon-do.
It is famous for a beach, and now the rain has stopped and the road has all drained, but only three hours ago, the roads were submerged in water.
This river you can see right behind me is the one that runs through the village, and it was once in danger of flooding.
As the water did not drain in time, the city was flooded and an evacuation order was issued for residents.
At 8:26 in the evening, literally 125mm per hour of heavy rain poured.
In Yangyang-gun and Sokcho-si, as well as Gangneung-si yesterday afternoon, torrential rains fell, flooding the city area and flooding low-lying houses.
In the vicinity of 96.5km in the direction of Samcheok from Yangyang on the Donghae Expressway, the traffic of vehicles was controlled for more than two hours last night due to soil flow.
The amount of rain that has fallen so far is over 260mm in Yangyang and Sokcho.
In the Gangwon area, typhoon warnings are issued on the east coast and mountains.
On the east coast of Gangwon-do, the typhoon is expected to be the closest between 6 and 7 a.m. this morning.
It is expected that rain is expected to exceed 100 to 300 by evening, and at most 400 mm, so residents need special attention.
