Heavy Rainfalls Trigger Deadly Flash Floods in South Korea

Unrelenting rain pounding Seoul, South Korea, and the southern part of the country is causing historic flooding and extensive landslides.

The downpours, which are being called the heaviest in 100 years, will continue Thursday at as much as two inches per hour. Some neighborhoods around Seoul are being evacuated.

Massive downpours in South Korea -- the heaviest rains in a century -- are blamed for 51 deaths, the country's Central Disaster Relief Agency reported Friday.

Heavy rain sent a landslide barrelling into a resort in a northern South Korean town Wednesday, leaving 12 people dead and two others missing, officials said.
