Rainstorm Destroys or damages about 60,000 Homes in South China

More than two dozen people are dead or reported as missing, after extreme rain events battered south China, said the Ministry of Civil Affairs on Tuesday.

Extreme rain and flooding have affected more than 1.16 million people in seven Chinese provinces —Fujian, Jiangxi, Hunan, Guangdong, Guangxi, Chongqing and Guizhou—forcing at least  17,000 to flee their homes, said the ministry.

“A total of 6,600 people are in need of emergency sustenance assistance, it said, while 1,600 houses have been toppled and 55,000 damaged,” said Xinhua.

Floodwaters have destroyed 47,600 hectares of crops causing  direct economic losses of more than $105 million U.S. dollars.

The fierce storm system has dumped about 300 mm of rain, the equivalent of about two months’ rainfall,  in some areas since March 27.
