North Korea Battered By Flooding And Landslides

PYONGYANG (BNO NEWS) – Heavy rains and resulting landslides last week have caused widespread damage in parts of North Korea, state-run media reported on Friday. It is unclear if there were casualties.

Heavy rainfall caused widespread flooding in mainly west and southwestern parts of the Asian country between Monday and Friday last week, resulting in destructive landslides. Some areas received more than 400 millimeters (15.7 inches) of rain.

“It rained heavily in most areas of South Pyongan, South and North Hwanghae, South Hamgyong and Kangwon provinces and some areas of North Pyongan and Ryanggang provinces from around midnight July 11 to 9 a.m. July 15,” said Choe Kwang Guk, a meteorologist at the Hydro-meteorological Service.

Choe said more than 300 millimeters (11.8 inches) of rain was recorded in eight counties, with 402 millimeters (15.8 inches) in Thaethan, 386 millimeters (15.1 inches) in Sohung, and 353 millimeters (13.8 inches) in Koksan.

Video released by the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) showed flooded rural areas in Pyongyang, the country’s capital. Footage from other regions showed flooded fields and damaged crops.

KCNA said landslides in Sunchon, Tokchon and Pukchang destroyed bridges and railways, but gave no information about whether there were casualties. It added that flooding also destroyed scores of homes, public buildings, roads, and tens of thousands of hectares of farmland. Dozens of coal mines were also flooded throughout the country.

Late last month, severe damage was also reported when Severe Tropical Storm Meari made landfall in western areas of North Korea. KCNA reported that heavy rain and strong winds destroyed more than 160 blocks of homes. It said people were killed, but gave no number. – Irish Weather Online

The governments continue to turn a blind eye to the SIGNS, but you can turn to Yahweh and Christ and escape what is just ahead. Go to them in prayer with a humble heart. Don’t find yourself trapped outside the Ark of safety like those of Noah’s preflood era. If that time progresses upon you and you have not taken the step, you will perish with Satan’s empire and be cast into the pit of eternal destruction. But, the choice must be each of yours – a FREE WILL CHOICE.

Yahweh’s Sovereign Rule, or Satan’s dying empire? The hour glass is running out of sand, and the hour is late, because you are all living in the symbolic last hour spoken of in the Word. Look at what is happening around you in this wicked world. Don’t turn a blind eye to all of it. Then make your decision.
