Let's summarize the damage situation overnight.
Last night's rain was also concentrated in Seoul, especially south of the Han River.
The darker the color, the more it rained. As you can see, the amount of rain that fell in Dongjak-gu and Seocho-gu in Seoul was three times that of Jongno-gu.
Let's take a look at the damage situation in Gangnam, Seoul, where it rained for almost a month in a short period of time.
First of all, reporter Hong Young-jae delivers.
night (8th) at Gangnam Station in Seoul.
The road has turned into a sea of water.
It is difficult to tell which is the driveway and which is the sidewalk.
The vehicle was unable to travel and stopped in the middle of the road.
The traffic around Gangnam Station in Seoul was instantly paralyzed as roads were flooded by heavy rain of more than 100 mm per hour.
[Hong Seung-pyo: (I leave work in the evening) It was around 7 pm, but the road was constantly submerged in water and I think I waited for about 3 hours (on the road).
First of all, I just pushed (by car) in.
You can't wait all night.]
Over 20 cars are waiting to be towed, covered in muddy water, in Seocho-daero, which was visited again in a bright day.
Even a large bus could not penetrate the current.
This vehicle is hanging over the flower bed above the sidewalk as if it has been washed down in the valley water.
Drivers who managed to escape are heartbroken.
[Flooded vehicle driver: I was standing still and the water started to blow and I could hear the car.
The door didn't open and water came up to the glass, and even if it breaks, do I have to escape now?]
Because of the vehicle blocking the entrance to the prosecutor's office, the sidewalk replaced the car,
[the tow truck is busy and you don't know when it will come...
Flooding damage continued on the basement floor of a shopping mall near Seocho-daero.
[Baek Seon-il / Merchant: There is a part here that repairs zippers that need to be attached to customers.
Leather, lining, etc. are all wet, so throw them away.]
The rain is expected to continue for a few more days, so it will take time to repair the damage.
