Seoul is currently experiencing the worst rain for a century. We had heavy downpour all last night battering on the roofs just outside my window. This morning the city was windswept, but still hot and humid.
It has been a serious business as between 20 and 30 people have died in the city, many of them in a mud-slide off the mountain a couple of weeks ago. This is a monsoon country and rain is expected at this season but the quantity is exceptional this year and has run beyond what the services are prepared for.
Another consequence is that we have 95% humidity on top of the hot weather. Go any distance away from an air-conditioning unit and you are soon drenched in sweat. It feels like walking through thin soup and everything is perpetually damp. You get used to it after a bit though. The continuous rain and gusty wind at the moment is because we are in the periphery of a typhoon which is passing to the north.
