A family yesterday looks at water being released from Paldang Dam in Hanam, Gyeonggi Province. With Typhoon Kalmaegi approaching, the dam almost reached 96.2 percent of full capacity, releasing 6,466 tons of water per second from 1:30 p.m. Sunday. After bringing torrential rain in the middle of the Korean Peninsula, the storm weakened to a tropical depression. More rain and strong winds are expected today, however, due to the tropical depression.
