FLOODS SEOUL (Reuters) - Satellite imagery shows that recent flooding in North Korea may have damaged pumping stations connected to the country's largest nuclear site, an American think tank announced Thursday.

Analysts at 38 North, a website that monitors North Korea, say images show the vulnerability of the nuclear reactor cooling system at the Yongbyon Scientific and Nuclear Research Center to extreme weather conditions.

The Korean Peninsula was hit by one of the longest rainfall events, suffering from floods and landslides that caused death and damage in both North Korea and South Korea.

According to the think tank, the Yongbyon site seems to have been spared from the floods and it seemed that the waters had started to decline by August 11.

The South Korean Defense Ministry declined to comment on 38 North's report but said it was monitoring developments related to North Korea's missile program and nuclear program nonetheless.
