  14 people dead or missing from record downpours in southeastern Korea
A quick check on the situation in Korea's southeastern region where record downpours early this week left a trail of destruction.
The death toll now stands at 13 according to a YTN report.
All those found were passengers on an intercity bus that was swept away by fast-moving currents on Monday.
Search operations continue for those who remain missing in the disaster while rail services gradually start to resume normal operations in the area.
All of this as more than 240 millimeters of rain fell in the southeast of the country on Monday in just about three hours, leading to landslides and flash flooding.
