The regime's state-run Korean Central News Agency reported this morning that the water levels near Taedong River is likely to exceed warning level this week, as more rainfall is expected in the region.
Taedong River that runs through capital Pyeongyang has seen devastating fatalities due to heavy rain back in 2007 even resulting a postponement of second inter-Korean summit by 2 months.
