    Background: SEOUL & ??? S. KOREA

    Landslides and floods caused by torrential rains swept through South Korea, leaving disaster in their wake. At least 83 people were reported dead and 37 others missing. Almost 100-thousand people were made homeless. Many people were caught unawares by the floods, which swept through villages at dawn. Relief workers said this accounted for the particularly high level of casualties. At least 66-thousand hectares of farmland and crops were still under water. Relief officials estimated damage at six million U.S. dollars. This figure did not take into account crop losses. The Han River which runs through the capital. Seoul, was threatening to burst its banks, and police evacuated more than 50-thousand people from the vicinity.
