Drones prove invaluable during heavy flooding in South Korea

In South Korea drones with hi-res cameras have shown to be invaluable during this year’s lengthy monsoon season. Last Wednesday, the drone team from the Chungbuk Provincial Police Agency used unmanned aircraft to look for missing people after a flood swept through Chungju Lake near Jecheon.

According to Korea Bizwire, the Chungbuk Provincial Police Agency’s drone team uses large drones that can fly as fast as 47 mph and carry 180x optical zoom cameras.

Firefighters, at the upper side of the Namhan River near Chungju, flew drones, a DJI Mavic 2 drone, to deliver medical supplies to people in villages that were surrounded by the flood.

The drones have also been used to investigate the damages caused by seasonal flooding. As recent as last Wednesday, drones were deployed in flooded regions to get an up-to-date picture of the extent of the flooding and damages incurred.
