Chaos: A street in southern Seoul is flooded as downpours totalling more than 400mm pounded the city is just 24 hours

Seoul was hit with 529.5 millimeters (21 inches) of rain between midnight July 26 and 9:30 a.m. today, the most on record for a 60-hour period in July, said Lee Hyun Gyu, a spokesman at the Korea Meteorological Administration.
