(Newser) – The death toll from South Korea's massive landslides has reached 67, with at least 10 still missing, Reuters reports, and this terrifying video shows some of the destruction. In the wake of the flash flooding and mudslides, caused by the heaviest rains in a century, residents were warned to be wary of rogue explosives: Officials say about 10 landmines that were buried at a military base in Seoul during the Korean War were swept away and have not yet been recovered. Meanwhile, storms also hit North Korea; state media have not reported any damage, but experts fear landslides may have struck the country and its unstable hillsides, too. More crazy pictures here.
