Heavy rain pounds central part of S. Korea; Jamsu Bridge closed for first time in 2 years Updated: 2022-06-30 18:03:57 KST

Torrential downpours are disrupting traffic here in the capital.
For the first time in two years Jamsu Bridge, which crosses the Han River in central Seoul, has been closed off.
That's because authorities have opened up around 10 water gates at the Paldang Dam as a precautionary step to prevent flooding.
As of 9 o'clock this morning, Paldang Dam was discharging close to 7-thousand tons of water per second.
Large streams in Seoul have also been overflowing causing highways like the Dongbu Expressway in northeast Seoul to be closed off.
Traffic congestion is expected to continue throughout the night.
We're also set to see up to 150 mm of rain pour down on the capital from now till tomorrow.
