North Korea Releases Dam Water Without Notice


The North opened the floodgates of Hwanggang Dam on the western inter-Korean border, sending water into the Imjin River flowing to the South and causing water levels under the river's northernmost Pilseung Bridge to rise to 5.97 meters as of 5 p.m. It's considered a crisis if water levels under the bridge reach 7.5 meters.
