From the Wall Street Journal:
The artillery—more than 50 rounds, according to island residents speaking on South Korea’s YTN television—was fired from positions south of the North Korean city of Haeju.
The attack started at 2:34 p.m. local time. Electricity was cut off on the island and people moved to bomb shelters, residents told YTN.
About 1,200 people live on the island, which is just 10 kilometers, or 6.2 miles, south of the tip of North Korea’s south coast.
Here’s some video that shows the island after the attack:
