Southwestern China Flooding Kills At least 12 in Sichuan

In a recent report by authorities in southwestern China’s Sichuan province, at least 12 people have died and 10 are missing following heavy rains, adding to a growing toll from summer flooding across the country.

Sichuan’s Mianning county was reportedly swept by storms on Friday and Saturday, with flooding especially bad in Yihai township. Two vehicles plunged into a river along a flood-damaged highway, and 7,705 people were evacuated in the area.

The area lies on a plain at the foot of steep hills that eventually rise to the Tibetan Plateau, the source of China’s major rivers.

Nationally, flooding since the start of June has left 78 people dead or missing, it’s destroyed more than 100,000 homes and caused direct economic losses estimated at more than 25 billion yuan ($3.5 billion), the Ministry of Emergency Management said on Sunday.

Seasonal flooding hits much of China yearly, and authorities have sought to mitigate the damage through the use of dams, particularly the massive Three Gorges structure on the Yangtze.

China’s worst floods in recent years were in 1998 when more than 2,000 people died and almost 3 million homes were destroyed.

All hands must be on deck to ensure people do not have the 1998 experience as Chinese authorities must encourage the people to do the needful at all times.
