The effects of climate change are being seen across the globe through abnormal weather events, and Korea is no exception, as evidenced by the last few days.
A tornado near Ilsan in Gyeonggi-do province this Tuesday was the first ever spotted on the mainland.
The twister lasted for at least an hour, leaving a trail of destruction in its path, with at least 21 greenhouses destroyed.
Tornadoes aside, other parts of the nation have had their own unique weather experiences this week, which include torrential rain and hail--both of which are unusual this time of year.
Meteorologists say an unstable atmosphere is to blame.
Five-kilometers above the nation, the air is currently at a temperature of minus-15 degrees.
Climate experts worry that the recent events could be a sign of more worrying changes to come.
