Thursday, Jordan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates offered its deepest condolences to the Republic of Korea over the victims of the floods that swept through Seoul and its suburbs, killing several people.

The ministry expressed Jordan’s sympathy to the Republic of Korea and offered condolences to the families of the victims.

Officials said earlier this week that subway stations and major roads were underwater in the South Korean capital Seoul after record-breaking rains caused severe flooding.

Authorities warned of more rain to come even as emergency workers tried to clear the hulks of flooded cars, which AFP reporters saw strewn across major intersections throughout the city.

Dramatic images shared on social media late Monday showed people wading through waist-deep water, metro stations overflowing, and cars half-submerged in Seoul's posh Gangnam district, which was particularly hard-hit when torrential rain battered the city.
