Downpour Hits Many Roads in Seoul
Rainy Spell Expected to Last Until July 20, 2016

The Seoul's Dongbuganseon Road or Eastern Arterial Road was completely blocked for the traffic as Jungrang Stream was fully flooded by the torrential rain that hit the South Korea's capital and central areas as of July 5, 2016, the National Meteorological Administration (NMA) announced on the day.

The Seoul Korean government issued a flood warning for the entire Seoul area as of 9 a.m. on the day as the heavy rain fell for the past two consecutive days.

Jungrangcheon or Jungrang Stream is originated from Yangju City north of Seoul and runs through Uijeongbu City and the heart of Seoul's northern area into the Han River, which divides North and South parts of Seoul.

From July 4 to July 5, 2015 some 88 mm of rains fell on the Seoul and its surrounding areas.

Cheonggyecheon or Cheonggye Stream also was flooded with the downpour that hit many parts of Seoul areas.

Jamsu Bridge was off limit to the traffic as it was submerged by the flood water.

The National Meteorological Administration announced that up to 150 mm of rain will fall on Seoul and its suburban areas until July 6, 2016.

The government will take a close watch over the areas vulnerable to the flood, according to the administration.

No one has been reported killed or missing from the flood in South Korea.

The rainy spell in 2016 started around June 20 and is expected to last until July 20 this year for most parts of South Korea, according to the administration.

Like many other Asian nations the Korean Peninsular gets under the influence of monsoon season during the summer time.

On average about 26 percent of yearly precipitation falls during this rainy season for the Korean Peninsula that includes North Korea.

The administration early said that a total of 398 mm of rains will fall in the entire rainy season this year, which is slightly less precipitation than usual years.
