Powerful rain front moves southward from Seoul, Chungcheong-do Provinces see heavy downpours Updated: 2022-08-11 08:00:06 KST

We start with the extreme weather that has been affecting South Korea for the past few days.
The Korea Meteorological Administration has lifted the heavy rain warning for the wider Seoul area and Incheon.
However, a heavy rain warning remains in place for the central region, including the Chungcheong-do Provinces as the powerful rain front that slammed Seoul and its surrounding areas for the last two days moves in a southerly direction.

Over three-hundred millimeters of rain is forecast to hit the Chungcheong-do region over the next several days.
And authorities are warning residents to be aware of flooding, especially around a stream in Cheongju.
While the rainfall will gradually subside in many parts of the greater Seoul area, up to 80 millimeters of rain is still expected through Friday morning.
As of 6 AM, Korea time, the death toll from the wet weather in Seoul, Gyeonggi-do and Gangwon-do Provinces has reached 11, with eight still missing.
Over 37-hundred homes and building were inundated nationwide with most of them in Seoul.
All of Seoul's subway services are back to normal, but the low-lying Jamsu Bridge remains closed.
