"The road closures and sporadic public transportation made commuters late for work, and people took off their shoes and socks in offices to dry them."
It's been pouring cats and dogs and other large animals for the past 24 hours and a lot of the news is covering the flooded streets of Seoul. Sadly people have lost their lives to landslides due to all this rain. Amidst the news wast that quote above, from the Korea Times and to me it was a bit funny. I don't even bother with shoes or socks and just go out in my sandals. But I think it is interesting that this sort of social aspect was even mentioned amongst the other disasters of the day.
Anyways, I hope people are going to be a bit more cautious tomorrow as the rain doesn't look like it is going to stop.
