Overnight Gwangju and Jeonnam Waterfall…Up to 120mm heavy rain by tomorrow
Gwangju and Jeollanam-do, where torrential rains poured overnight, are expected to receive up to 120mm more rain by tomorrow.
Heavy rains of up to 60 millimeters per hour are expected in some areas, raising concerns about further rain damage.
There has been strong monsoon rains all over the country since the weekend.
In Muan, Jeollanam-do, nearly 400m of water fell, and more than 200mm of rain was concentrated in Mokpo and Gwangju.
In particular, heavy rain was once issued in Gwangju and other areas due to heavy rain of about 60mm per hour overnight.
The heavy rain warning has been lifted as the rain has subsided since the day, but we can’t be relieved until tomorrow.
The congestion front is still going up and down inland, so continuous heavy rain preparation is needed.
By tomorrow, up to 120mm of rain will fall in Gwangju and Jeollanam-do, and 100mm more in Jeonbuk, Gyeongnam, and Jeju.
Up to 80mm of rain is also expected in Gyeonggi, Gangwon, and Chungcheong.
In particular, torrential rains of up to 60mm per hour were predicted in Honam and Jeju.
As it has already rained twice as much as the previous rainy season, there are concerns about additional damage such as landslides and river flooding.
From the day after tomorrow, the precipitation pattern will change due to local rain, not due to the congestion front.
However, the Korea Meteorological Administration is cautious about ending the rainy season.
The Korea Meteorological Administration says the location of the congested front is highly volatile depending on the power and path of the fifth typhoon “Eagle” heading north, and the end of the rainy season should be watched a little more.
