North Korean Floods Damage 20 Percent of North Korean Rice Crop: WFP
Floods in North Korea in recent weeks have affected 437,000 people and damaged more than one-fifth of the country’s rice crop, according to official North Korean estimates, the United Nation’s food relief agency said today. “According to figures from the North Korean agriculture ministry, 223,381 hectares (551,974 acres) of rice, corn, and soja have been damaged, or more than 20 percent of rice crops, and 15 percent of corn fields,” said World Food Programme (WFP) spokeswoman Christiane Berthiaume.

The reclusive communist state has reported about 300 people dead or missing after torrential rain earlier this month, 300,000 homeless and 11 percent of the grain harvest — equivalent to 450,000 ton — lost.The WFP has already announced that it will distribute food aid to 215,000 people for three months in districts where the agency is present and can watch over distribution. The United Nations has said it is preparing to make an urgent appeal mainly to Western donors for relief aid in North Korea.
