I've been keeping up with the flood stories. Really sad to see how damaging the monsoon rains are this year. In one month alone Korea reached its average full year's worth of rainfall! Can you believe it? A mudslide also took several individuals' lives in Seoul. College students on a trip doing volunteer service in Chuncheon were also affected by the heavy rains that set off mudslides. Tragic mother nature taking over!
Keeping Korea in thought and prayer. Travelers need to keep busy and avoid driving in the rain as much as possible. Here are 5 things you can do on a rainy in Korea. Although the post is targeting those enduring the typhoon -ish weather it most certainly does not address how to fight the floods. Maybe you have some suggestions? This weather definitely calls for thigh high rain boots!!!
Check out some of the popular youtube videos floating around. (Literally everything is floating around!) Be safe everyone!
