Kim visits North Korea flood zone, orders shelter, food aid

SEOUL (AP) — North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un visited parts of southern North Korea where days of torrential rains flooded hundreds of houses and vast areas of agricultural land, state media reported yesterday.

It is rare for Kim to visit a flood-stricken site. The last time state media reported such a visit was in September 2015, when he inspected recovery work at a flood-hit northeast city, according to Seoul’s Unification Ministry.
