Unleashing of Dam in North Korea Causes Deadly Flash Flood in the South

September 6th, 2009

At 2 a.m. last night, water released from dams in North Korea came ripping down the Imjin River into South Korea, creating a flash flood that has claimed at least six South Korean lives.

The unannounced release led to the doubling of the Imjin River’s water level to over 15 feet.

Whether this was the result of an accident or to provoke the South remains uncertain. Regardless, this will undoubtedly hurt the already strained relations between the two peninsular countries.
