In South Korea, it was notified nationwide to prevent floods and heavy rainfall that is Establishment and Operation Guidelines for regional prevention capacity target against disasters (National Emergency Management Agency, 2011). Disaster prevention target rainfall was calculated for 1 hour, 2 hours, and 3 hours for the 30-year frequency. A large value was applied compared to the recently rainfall analysis result and Disaster prevention target rainfall when installing major facilities such as rivers or sewer.
In this study, in order to apply the record rainstorms that have occurred continuously since 2011, analysis of rainfall data at nationwide 69 locations was used to estimate the Disaster prevention target rainfall in korea. It was analyzed that the existing disaster prevention target rainfall increased by 1.72% for one hour, 0.91% for two hours and 0.68% for three hours.
