I went down to 잠수교 (Jamsu Bridge) underneath 반포대교 (Banpo Bridge) this morning to take a look at the damage yesterday's rains had done. I'd seen pictures of the flooded bridge in previous years, but I had never actually taken a close look for myself. It really is incredible what a few days of rain can do to a river and at the same time a sober reminder of how dangerous monsoon season can be.
Most of the bridge was underwater, with only the signs and traffic lights to remind us how high the water has come up.
The underpass heading to the Yongsan army base and Noksapyeong has also succumbed to the floods.
Steps head down into the water...
A lone "slow" sign holds its own against the river.
The cycle paths have disappeared.
All that's left of Jamsu Bridge is the hump.
Trees are almost completely covered.
