Mayor's Hope Journal

    We’re already worried.

    The season of torrential rain and typhoons is coming, and we have no idea when or how hard they will hit us.

    For five months starting today, May 15 to October 15, the Flood Control Disaster & Safety Countermeasure Headquarters in Seoul will be operational. Yesterday morning, we held the opening ceremony at the Seoul Safety Control Center on the third basement level of the new City Hall. We even prayed for the safety of our citizens.

    It is impossible to completely prevent natural disasters, but I hope that we can get through this summer safe and sound by preparing for disaster with hard work and dedication. We will do our best to prevent the coming storms and floods from causing much damage, paying careful attention to even the smallest details. Fellow citizens, if you can, please lend us a hand!
