Heavy Rains, Flooding Leave Seven Dead in South Korea

Heavy rains and flooding have left seven people dead in South Korea, with more than 100 others missing and feared dead. The rains began on Saturday and continued through Sunday, causing widespread flooding and mudslides. The hardest-hit areas are in the southern provinces of Jeollanam-do and Gyeongsangnam-do.

The government has dispatched emergency crews to the affected areas to search for survivors and to help with rescue and relief efforts. The president has also declared a state of emergency in the affected areas.

The heavy rains are the result of a tropical depression that made landfall in South Korea on Saturday. The depression is expected to weaken and move away from the Korean Peninsula on Monday, but the risk of flooding and mudslides remains high.

The government has urged people to stay safe and to avoid unnecessary travel. It has also warned residents of the affected areas to be on the lookout for signs of flooding and mudslides.
