According to the
report of the Chief Director of the Hangang Project Headquarters, many places
in Banpo and other low-lying areas have been hit by severe flooding. The
affected areas are likely to increase as Paldang Dam continues to discharge
water at the rate of 10,500 tons/hour. Precautions are being taken to prevent damage
to facilities, and roads have been blocked where there is a risk of danger due
to flooding. We are preparing to clean the affected areas as soon as the flood recedes.
