Heavy Rains And Flooding Kill 15 In Southern China

Heavy rains brought more floods to some regions of southern China, killing at least 15 people and forcing more than 100,000 people to flee their homes, state media reported on Friday.
Torrential rains have battered many of China’s southern provinces over the past two months, triggering floods and landslides that have killed almost 400 people this year and caused losses of around 10 billion US dollars.
State television broadcast images of flood damage in Jiangsu, Fujian provinces, and Chongqing, where heavy rain caused all train services to be suspended on Friday.
Torrential rains have also hit China’s central Hunan and Hubei province, damaging road networks and power supplies.
Flooding in western Qinghai province earlier this week killed at least 25 people, state news agency Xinhua said.
