So, I have to pay a little money in August to survive when it's cheap, but I've been playing until now.] The
damage to the orchard is also serious.
Dozens of peach trees that had been raised for six years were submerged and killed.

In addition to Icheon, the area of Baekam-myeon, Yongin-si, designated as a special disaster area, is still suffering from flood damage.
The paddy fields are immersed in sand, and the rice fields are not properly cultivated and become a chaff.
[Ahn Won-seop/Yongin-si, Baekam-myeon farmers: We need to recover.
What can I just use this (non)?
(Can't rice be harvested?) I can't use rice.
What do you do with this (rice) cut.]
