    Rains in South Korea turn Seoul’s roads to rivers, leave eight dead

    SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (AP) – Some of the heaviest rain in decades swamped South Korea’s capital region, turning Seoul’s streets into car-clogged rivers and sending floods cascading into subway stations.

    At least eight people were killed – some by drowning in their homes – and seven others were missing, while more rain was forecast.

    Deserted cars and buses were scattered across streets as the water receded on Tuesday as workers cleared uprooted trees, mud and debris with excavators and blocked off broken roads and pavement. Landslide warnings were issued in nearly 50 cities and towns, while 160 hiking paths in Seoul and mountainous Gangwon province were closed.
