At least nine people have died, and six were reported missing in the Seoul area on Tuesday, August 9, after record overnight rainfall flooded homes, roads, and the Seoul metro system, according to local news reports. Local news said the downpour in Seoul was the heaviest in 115 years, as the Ministry of the Interior and Safety urged locals in affected areas to evacuate. Up to 141.5 mm (5.6 inches) of rain fell in one hour in parts of Seoul on Monday, according to reports, and more rain was expected on Wednesday, the Korea Meteorological Administration said.
