North Korean television has confirmed another disaster has occurred in the Communist country.

Local media has produced pictures of flooding and devastation in farming areas in Jagang, South Hamgyong and northern Pyongan provinces, with reports of casualties and many homes destroyed in torrential rains.

The North Korean television footage was run on Saturday, without any announcement of when the devastation actually occurred.

The official Korean Central News Agency has reported nearly 40,000 acres of farmland were submerged and over 6,000 homes, public buildings and facilities were destroyed by the floods.

Landslides caused by the torrential rains wrecked bridges and roads and also resulted in power failures, according to KCNA.

North Korean State media often only reports news days or weeks after the actual event.
