Heavy rain pounds central part of S. Korea; Jamsu Bridge closed for first time in 2 years Updated: 2022-06-30 14:49:07 KST

Torrential downpours are disrupting traffic here in Seoul.
For the first time in two years, the low-lying Jamsu Bridge, which crosses the Han River in the middle of the capital, has been closed off.
That's because the authorities are releasing water from the Paldang Dam upstream as a precautionary step to prevent flooding.
As of 9 o'clock this morning, the 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 too.
Traffic congestion is expected to continue through the night.
We're also forecast to see up to 150 millimeters of rain in the capital through tomorrow.
