Deadly gas leak sickens thousands, destroys crops in Gumi, S. Korea

The government of South Korea has designated a large area affected by a deadly gas leak in the southeastern city of Gumi as a special disaster zone amid mounting casualties and damage from the incident.

  • “On Sept. 27, some eight tons of hydrofluoric acid, an acute poison that can damage lungs and bones and affect the nervous system, leaked from chemical maker Hube Globe in Gumi, some 200 kilometers southeast of Seoul, killing five workers and injuring 18 others,” said a report.
  • At least 3,000 residents of Gumi and hundreds of nearby villagers have since been sickened by the poisonous gas, prompting mass evacuations and the disaster declaration.
  • “Crops and fruit on more than 212 hectares of farmlands and orchards have withered, and some 3,200 livestock animals have been drooling heavily or showing symptoms similar to a cold,” according to the report.
