Chinese authorities on full flood alert


Over 110 million people have been affected by a flood disaster in China, which has led to the deaths of over 700 people.

Over 350 others are missing and 645,000 homes have collapsed, according to China’s State Flood Control and Drought Relief ministry.

The south of the country has been experiencing very high water levels and more rain is on the way with a second tropical storm in the space of a week due to hit.

Rescue officials are using the time between storms to evacuate more people.

Already 13 million people have already been evacuated after the many weeks of torrential rain, which is now bursting dams and causing landslides.

Some officials fear a repeat of the Yangtze floods of 1998, which killed 4000.
