Heavy Snow and Freezing Temperatures Hit South Korea — at least 3 People Killed in Seoul

Seoul received its largest single-day snowfall of the season on Monday as 4.1cm (1.6 inches) settled in South Korea’s capital city, adding to the 3.9cm (1.54 inches) from the previous day, the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) said.

The Monday morning mercury plunged to -5.5C 22.1F) in Seoul, with a harsh windchill making it feel more like –10.5C (13.1F). The KMA added that temps will dip even further tomorrow (Tues), to -8C (17.6F).

Icy roads resulted in a 20 vehicle pile-up inside a tunnel connecting Suncheon and Wanju in North Jeolla on Monday, leaving three people dead and another 38 others injured, according to police.

A chemical truck carrying sodium hydroxide was one of the vehicles involved in the accident. Police said the truck caught fire and caused a toxic gas leak in the tunnel, hindering rescue efforts.

20 car pile-up in icy conditions kills at 3 people (Yonhap).

Elsewhere, parts of Jeju Island received a whopping 73cm (28.7 inches) of snow Sunday into Monday, Ulleung Island in the East Sea saw 29cm (11.4 inches), while accumulations reached 5.7cm (2.24 inches) in Gwangju, and 5.5cm (2.17 inches) in Jeonju.

The mountainous pass linking Jeju and Seogwipo was blocked as a result of large drifts, while access to other roads in the region was limited to vehicles equipped with snow chains.

Furthermore, the settling snow wasn’t restricted to the mountains — even low-lying regions of Jeju Island reported rare accumulations, prompting Signore Sammy on Twitter to comment: “…this is first time I’ve seen more than a flurry … It’s snowing sideways!”

Dozens of flights to and from the provinces of Jeju, Gangwon, Jeolla and Gyeongsang have either been canceled or delayed. And snow warnings or alerts remain in place for a number of regions nationwide, including Jeju Island, Ulleung Island, Gyeonggi, Chungcheong, and Jeolla.

Temperatures in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province are forecast to take a further nosedive, sinking to -14C (6.8F), and authorities have warned people to only venture out if absolutely necessary.

The cold times are returning.

Even warm-mongers NOAA appears to agree, with their latest data revealing the Earth has been substantially cooling for half a decade now — a trend expected to “snowball” as we move forward, in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow.

Don’t fall for bogus political agendas — our future is one of ever-descending COLD.
