Extreme Rain Events Trigger Severe Flooding in SW China’s Guizhou and Sichuan provinces

Severe flooding and mudslides have affected more than six million people in central and southern China leaving at least 500,000 people homeless since late last month.

Hanan province issued a red alert last week as Extreme Rain Events continued to pound the region unleashing more floods and mudslides.

Floods have claimed at least 12 lives with two people reported missing, officials said.

“More than 1.37 million people in eight cities and prefectures in [Hunan] province have been affected, and 3,431 houses have collapsed [and more than 50,000 people were relocated.] Landslides triggered by rainstorms have occurred on sections of the No.209 national highway in Xiangxi Tu and Miao Autonomous Prefecture,” said a report.
