This is a PSA for anyone living near Gumi area. (Gumi is near Daegu.) There was an explosion of a chemical plant a week ago, which led to a massive leak of hydrofluoric acid. (The explosion killed five and injured 18.)

Apparently, Gumi’s fire department did not respond adequately, allowing the chemical to spread in the area. Approximately 890 people — including hundreds of firefighters — received treatment from hospital. Crops near the area were destroyed, and farm animals were reported to be poisoned by the chemical. Korea’s national government is expected to declare the city to be a disaster area soon.

If you are in the area, I would advise staying indoors.
