Worst rains of the century

July 27th, 2011
The worst rains in a century. Literally. So, this was my walk to school on my last day before summer vacation. It was like tropical downpours, but lasted for hours. My walk took me quite a bit longer than usual since I kept stopping under bridges and awnings. An umbrella did very little, the streets were turning into rivers and I was trudging through water up to my knees! Quite a crazy sight it was. Luckily there wasn’t any damage to my immediate area, but areas east of Seoul were hit quite hard. There were unfortunately even mudslides and landslides that resulted in some fatalities. I took this video while waiting under a bridge.
