Deadly Rainstorms Wreak Havoc across SW China

Extreme Rain Events have left at least 9 cities and 45 towns in SW China in a “State of Disaster,” affecting millions of people, displacing hundreds of thousands, and killing or injuring scores of others. Many people are missing.

“Continuous heavy rains have battered Sichuan since Sept. 8, leaving about 2.5 million people in nine cities in a state of disaster and forcing 160,000 among them to relocate to avoid risks, said the flood control headquarters of Sichuan,” said China’s official news agency, Xinhua.

The rainstorms have destroyed at least 8,200 housing units in the province causing major rivers to flood, said the report.

Raging floodwaters have destroyed or damaged thousands of hectares of crops and swept away scores of livestock.

Extreme rains will continue to pound southwest and central China, according to the National Meteorological Center (NMC) forecast on Sunday.
