South Korea suffers worst rainfall in eight decades

SEOUL—South Korea’s heaviest rainfall since World War II has swamped cars on streets, flooded subway stations and killed at least eight people.

The downpours also hit neighboring North Korea, adding to the chaos as floodwaters poured near the two countries’ border without giving notice as required by an inter-Korean agreement. Water levels near a border bridge reached nearly 17 feet on Monday afternoon, six times higher than normal, South Korean officials said.
