The Jamsu Bridge in Seoul remained blocked off on Wednesday, for the 11th consecutive day, due to flooding after days of heavy rain.

According to the Han River flood control office, as of 9:30 a.m., water levels near the bridge hovered around 7.85 meters.

The Seoul city government closes the bridge to pedestrians when water levels rise above 5.5 meters and to vehicles when levels top 6.2 meters.

The bridge has been off limits since August 2, breaking its previous closure record of nearly six days in July 1981.
