BUSAN, South Korea (YTN/CNN) - Intense summer rain has led to deadly flooding on Tuesday in a coastal South Korean city.

At least five people died as rushing water filled subway tunnels. Authorities reported that another five people are missing, possibly swept out to sea by flooding.

The city's nuclear power plant was closed in the emergency.
