Record-breaking rainfall hit parts of South Korea’s capital Seoul and surrounding regions on August 8, 2022, leaving at least 8 people dead and 7 others missing. At least 14 people have been injured and more than 80 rescued from flooded streams. 391 people in the capital area were left homeless.
Parts of Seoul, Incheon, and Gyeonggi Province experienced above 100 mm/h (3.93 inches/h) of rain Monday night, with Seoul’s Dongjak district receiving 141.5 mm/h (5.57 inches/h).1
The hourly precipitation total of 141.5 mm (5.57 inches) in Dongjak is also the greatest for Seoul, beating the previous record of 118.6 mm (4.66 inches) set in the summer of 1942.
The automated weather station in Dongjak of the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) recorded daily precipitation of 381.5 mm (15.01 inches) on Monday, which was significantly higher than the official record of 354.7 mm (13.96 inches) set in August 1920 and the highest since the country’s first modern weather record system was implemented in 1907.
However, KMA said that the most recent data would not be included in the official record book since it was not taken at the agency’s standard weather observation station in the Jongno neighborhood of Seoul.
As of 06:00 LT on August 9, the country’s central and other regions were receiving rains of up to 50 mm (1.96 inches) per hour, with the accumulated precipitation in Seoul reaching 422 mm (16.6 inches) from August 8 to 08:00 LT on August 9.
he resulting floods killed 5 people and left 4 others missing in Seoul, while in Gyeonggi Province, 3 people had died and 2 others were missing. One individual is still missing in Gangwon Province.
At least 765 facilities were damaged, while about 80 highway segments, 3 subterranean roadways, and 26 riverfront parking spaces were closed due to safety concerns.
The downpours also rendered numerous public facilities inoperable, with 8 instances of flooded railroads reported in Seoul, Incheon, and other cities, as well as the temporary suspension of service on sections of several railway and subway lines, including Seoul Subway Line 4 and the Gyeongin Line.
As of August 9, 8 passenger ferry routes remained out of operation while access remains restricted to 156 hiking trails in five national mountain parks, including Mount Bukhan on the northern outskirts of Seoul.
The meteorological office predicts up to 300 mm (11.81 inches) of rain in the metropolitan region from August 9 to 11, with southern Gyeonggi Province expected to get more than 350 mm (13.77 inches).
BEIJING—Burma’s ambassador to China died suddenly on Sunday in the southwestern Chinese city of Kunming, according to an obituary in Burma state media and diplomatic sources in Beijing.
The obituary for Ambassador U Myo Thant Pe by Burma’s foreign ministry in a state newspaper on Monday did not specify his cause of death.
Diplomats in Beijing and a Chinese language Burmese media report said the cause was likely to be a heart attack.
U Myo Thant Pe was last seen on Saturday meeting a local official in the southwestern Chinese province of Yunnan which borders Burma (also known as Myanmar), according to a local news report.
The Burmese embassy in China did not immediately respond to a query for comment.
U Myo Thant Pe was appointed ambassador to China in 2019 and stayed in his post after Burma’s military took power in a coup in February 2021.
He was the fourth ambassador to die in China in the past year.
German ambassador Jan Hecker, 54, died in September, less than two weeks into his Beijing posting. Ukrainian ambassador Serhiy Kamyshev, 65, died in February during or shortly after a visit to a Beijing Winter Olympics venue.
A bipartisan group of US lawmakers wants the Federal Reserve to get more serious about issuing a digital dollar to compete with rivals like China’s digital yuan.
Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters has drafted legislation that aims for the Fed to further study the prospect of a digital dollar and design a route for it to come to fruition, The Wall Street Journal reported.
It comes after Waters, who is chair of the House Financial Services Committee, called the area of central bank digital currencies “a new digital assets space race.”
Another supporter of the digital-dollar effort, Republican Rep. French Hill, cited China’s creation of a digital yuan in 2020 as a concern, noting Beijing’s lending around the world could aid its adoption and threaten the dollar’s dominance.
“We should be concerned about China’s predatory practices,” he told the Journal.
China hasn’t ruled out a global role for its digital currency, named the e-CNY, but said it’s mostly intended for small purchases by consumers.
The Fed is already reviewing the pros and cons of a digital currency. But Chairman Jerome Powell has said he’s in no rush, while remaining steadfast that a digital dollar won’t happen without the support of elected officials. Meanwhile, the Biden administration has ordered a study to review the ramifications of a digital dollar but has yet to take a stance on the issue.
Getting a digital dollar to market still faces obstacles from both the banking industry that says a digital currency would compete with their ability to take in deposits.
A digital dollar would be different than private assets like bitcoin and other popular cryptocurrencies in that the digital dollar would be backed by the central bank. A digital dollar has the potential to revamp the way consumers spend and transact outside of already established payment apps like Apple Pay.
(WGHP) — The sun has been very active lately, which could cause a few problems for us here on Earth, according to NASA.
While the solar cycle is not yet at its peak, the space agency said activity has already surpassed predictions. Solar flares and eruptions will likely increase from now until 2025, as we reach “solar maximum,” writes Nicola Fox, the director of NASA’s heliophysics division.
“During the Sun’s natural 11-year cycle, the Sun shifts from relatively calm to stormy, then back again,” says Fox. “At its most active, called solar maximum, the Sun is freckled with sunspots and its magnetic poles reverse.”
“The intensity is probably an underestimate because it was partially eclipsed by the edge of the Sun. Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory saw hot debris flying away from the blast site,” the site reported on Monday. “Earth is not in the line of fire. The explosion is significant because it may herald an active region set to emerge over the sun’s northeastern limb later this week. A new sunspot group could bring an end to weeks of relative quiet.”
While we’ll likely see more solar flares – and resulting complications – as we approach to 2025, there’s no need to fear a doomsday scenario.
“Some people worry that a gigantic ‘killer solar flare’ could hurl enough energy to destroy Earth, but this is not actually possible,” NASA explains.
Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah warned his terror group would “sever” Israel’s hand if it dared to try and access offshore gas reserves, threatening to attack the Jewish state next month.
It was the fourth such threat in as many weeks by the terror chief.
“We have to be ready for all options,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech marking Speaking on the Muslim holy day of Ashura. “Any aggression towards Lebanon will not go unpunished.”
The U.S. is brokering talks surrounding a decades-long maritime dispute between Israel and Lebanon. Oil and gas reserves were discovered in the territorial waters under dispute.
Hezbollah threatened war over Israel’s decision to develop the Karish gas field and has attacked the rig twice in recent months. The Israeli military intercepted four Hezbollah drones headed for the rig in June and July respectively.
“Lebanon’s oil, gas and water resources must remain under its control and no one should be allowed to rob the country,” he said.
“The hand that reaches for any of this wealth will be severed,” he warned.
Nasrallah went on to claim that Israel planned on assassinating senior Palestinians in Lebanon. “An attack on any person in Lebanon will not go unanswered,” he warned.
Within an hour of the first videos hitting social media and widely circulating, Russia’s defense ministry has said the large explosion at its Crimean Saky Airbase was not the result of an airstrike or shelling. The statement said ammunition stored at the airfield detonated, but the cause of what ignited the storage depot is still unknown and being investigated. Russian state media has published the following English-language statements of the defense ministry:
The Russian Defense Ministry has reacted to reports of explosions near the town of Novofedorovka in Crimea, saying that a detonation of several rounds of air-launched ammunition had taken place at the Saki airfield located not far from the town.
The detonated ammunition was stored at the airfield’s bunded storage area, the ministry said, adding that the ensuing blasts did not result in casualties or damage to aircrafts. The resulting fire is in the process of being put out, the Defense Ministry elaborated.
The ammo’s detonation did not happen due to shelling or an airstrike on the airport, the ministry underscored.
Local social media reports cited eyewitness accounts which said ambulances and emergency crews are speeding toward the site of the large explosion.
Nearby beachgoers in Crimea looked on stunned, given the ongoing Ukraine war has never before reached the environs of the territory which Russia controversially formally took over in 2014 following the so-called “Crimea crisis” and referendum.
One person has been killed in a series of explosions that rocked a Russian military airfield in Crimea on Tuesday afternoon, the region’s governor has revealed. Five more people have sustained minor injuries as a result of the incident, according to the local health ministry.
Officials in Moscow earlier put the blasts down to an accidental detonation of ammunition and denied they had been caused by an enemy attack.
Sergey Aksyonov, the head of Crimea, who is at the Saki airfield, posted a video on his Telegram channel, saying that “unfortunately, now official information is coming in, unfortunately, we have one fatality.” The official pledged to issue updates on social media if and when more details are established.
Crimea’s health ministry, in turn, has confirmed that five people injured in the incident, including a child, have been hospitalized, with their condition being described as non-life-threatening.
Taiwan’s foreign minister on Tuesday warned China is using its aggressive military drills around the island as part of a broader plan for what it fears is an impending invasion.
Foreign Minister Joseph Wu told reporters in Taipei that Taiwan will not be intimidated by China’s aggression but said, “China has used the drills in its military play-book to prepare for the invasion of Taiwan.”
“It is conducting large-scale military exercises and missile launches, as well as cyber-attacks, disinformation, and economic coercion, in an attempt to weaken public morale in Taiwan,” first reported Reuters. “After the drills conclude, China may try to routinize its action in an attempt to wreck the long-term status quo across the Taiwan Strait.”
Wu did not offer up a timeline on when Taipei thinks Beijing could officially order troops to invade the island, though some reporting has suggested it could happen by 2024 as China and the U.S. prepare for elections.
However, the Pentagon does not agree with this assessment, and Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Dr. Colin Kahl told reporters Monday that Beijing is “trying to coerce the international community.”
“We’re not going to take the bait, and it’s not going to work. It’s a manufactured crisis that that doesn’t mean we have to play into that,” he added. “What we’ll do instead is to continue to fly, to sail and to operate wherever international law allows us to do so.”
Beijing first crossed the unofficial border that separates Taiwan from mainland China when it launched a series of military drills following a controversial visit to Taipei from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Chinese authorities suggested her visit was an attempt by the U.S. to push for Taiwanese independence and launched ballistic missile tests along with simulated sea and air attacks around Taiwan.
Russia has warned ‘Armageddon’ could be on the horizon in a terrifying warning aired on state TV.
The ominous message was released after tensions around the Zaporizhzia atomic power plant grew this week.
Ukrainian leaders accused Russia of “deliberately shelling” the plant, which is the biggest in Europe. Russia denies the charges and claims it is Ukraine risking nuclear catastrophe by shelling the plant.
But there are fears Putin’s forces will blame a disaster at the plant on Ukraine and use it as a pretext to deepen the conflict.
Now Russian President Vladimir Putin’s largest state-controlled TV channel has given airtime to the leader of pro-Kremlin Ukrainian movement Parus, Yury Kot, who claimed it was Kyiv and the West jeopardizing nuclear safety.
He urged Putin to be ready to fire nuclear missiles at London and Washington.
“We all understand very well that Ukraine and the West are concocting a fictional reality over Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant,” he said on Channel One.
“We are dealing with the reality.
“We need to tell Ukraine and its supporting countries – Britain and America foremost…and make it clear.
“If Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant is damaged and a disaster occurs, two missiles will immediately strike your decision-making centers
“One in Washington, the other in London – nuclear ones. And that’s it, there won’t be any more talk.”
But he was slapped down by another talkshow pundit Aleksey Mukhin, head of Centre for Political Information, who said: “This would trigger the mutual destruction protocol, so I would honestly refrain from making such statements.”
Putin has boasted that his new Sarmat [Satan-2] and Tsirkon nuclear missiles are “unstoppable” by Western defences.
Meanwhile, on Rossiya 1 channel Putin propagandist Igor Korotchenko – a reserve colonel and editor-in-chief of Russia’s National Defence magazine – warned of a nuclear-style winter even without a missile strike caused by the gas shortages being imposed on the West by Putin.
“So this world is doomed,” he claimed.
“Millions of Europeans…are terrified by winter coming.
“It will be like a nuclear winter, an apocalypse before our eyes.
“Switching off the energy, lack of gas, marauders on the streets, hassles with the police and desperate people’s attempts to survive.
“There will be no food, no electricity, and no gas.
Republicans are vowing to get revenge on the FBI if they take back Congress in November in response to the ‘rogue behavior’ of the agency after it raided Donald Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida on Monday night.
The former president said on Monday that the Florida home was ‘under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents’ – reportedly raided as part of an investigation into whether he took classified documents with him when he left the White House.
Several GOP leaders slammed the DOJ for the raid, and Republican leader Kevin McCarthy vowed revenge on the agency.
McCarthy called out US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Twitter, telling him ‘preserve your documents and clear your calendar.’
‘I’ve seen enough,’ he wrote. ‘The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization.
When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned. Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar.’
The raid on Monday night comes as Trump is considering another bid for the presidency and his actions after the 2020 election, where he tried to invalidate Joe Biden’s victory, are under investigation by lawmakers on Capitol Hill.
Trump’s son Eric Trump appeared on Hannity later Monday night where he revealed he was the one who alerted his father to the raid and said his father’s office was ransacked but that agents found ‘nothing in the safe.’
‘I was the guy who got the call this morning and I called my father and let him know it happened, and I was involved all day,’ he told Fox News host Sean Hannity. ‘Welcome to politics in the 2020s.’
‘To have 30 FBI agents — actually more than that — descend on Mar-a-Lago, give absolutely, you know, no notice, go through the gates, start ransacking an office, ransacking a closet — you know, they broke into a safe. He didn’t even have anything in the safe. I mean, give me a break.’
He charged President Joe Biden’s White House as the force behind the raid.
‘This didn’t come from a local FBI field office in Palm beach, Florida. You know this came from? This came from one place and one building, and that is the White House in Washington, D.C. They want to attack a guy who they view as his greatest threat, Biden’s greatest threat,’ Eric Trump said.
Biden’s White House had no heads up on the matter. Senior White House officials found out about it via Twitter, the New York Times reported.
Trump’s other son Donald Jr. son slammed the Biden administration and the DOJ for ripping the country apart.
‘Biden’s out of control DOJ is ripping this country apart with how they’re openly targeting their political enemies. This is what you see happen in 3rd World Banana Republics!!!
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis echoed the sentiment, comparing Biden’s administration to a regime and and America to a Banana Republic.
‘The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves,’ DeSantis said. ‘Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.’
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene called the raid ‘rogue behavior of communist countries, NOT the United States of America!!!’
She tweeted: ‘The FBI is raiding President Trump’s home in Maralago! This is the rogue behavior of communist countries, NOT the United States of America!!! These are the type of things that happen in countries during civil war. The political persecution MUST STOP!!!’
Trump didn’t say specifically what the federal agents were looking for, but complained about the FBI agents breaking into his safe.
‘They even broke into my safe!’ the former president complained.
The investigation is focused on material that Trump brought with him to Mar-a-Lago after he left the White House, the New York Times reported.
The 15 boxes of material reportedly contained classified information, which would be a violation of federal law.
It began Monday morning and took hours. A Florida reporter tweeted at 6:36 p.m. that the agents had ‘just left.’ Trump released his statement announcing the raid at 6:52 p.m.
‘These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,’ Trump said in shocking statement released on Monday night.
‘After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.’
Many GOP leaders fumed about the raid on Twitter.
Marco Rubio wrote: ‘After todays raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for?’
Lauren Boebert tweeted that the DOJ ‘must be held accountable.’
‘Biden’s FBI just raided the house of the man most likely to be the Republican Presidential nominee in 2024…on top of all the other fake investigations into President Trump. Stop weaponizing federal agencies to distract from your own failed agenda!’
‘The GOP must set up a Select Committee to investigate the FBI’s politically-motivated raid on Mar-a-Lago and on ALL the fraudulent persecution of President Trump from our government. This cannot wait. We are turning into a banana republic at record speed,’ she added.
Nick Smith, an author endorsed by Trump called the raid an assault on the US Constitution.
