    South Korea flooding death toll rises to 11

    SEOUL (AFP) – The death toll from South Korea’s record-breaking rains and flooding has risen to 11, officials said yesterday, with eight more people still missing as Seoul struggles to clean up after the deluge.

    Two days of torrential rain flooded streets and subway stations in the capital, with President Yoon Suk-yeol saying it was the heaviest rainfall since Seoul weather records began 115 years ago.

    Images shared on social media earlier this week showed people wading through waist-deep water and overflowing metro stations, with the posh Gangnam district particularly hard hit.

    Of the 11 dead, six were in Seoul, three in Gyeonggi province and two others in Gangwon province.
