Record rains and flooding across 27 provinces in mainland China have left 140 people dead or missing (ABC News Australia’s Yvonne Yong reports).

There are reports of 140 to 180 people killed during flooding in the 2020 rain season in mainland China.

As of July 13, 2020 at least 14 people were dead, and five others were missing in Hubei province. Over nine million people were affected in the province where Wuhan City is located and were the Coronavirus pandemic is believed to have originated.

About 12:00 p.m. on July 6, 2020 the dam at the Baiyanghe Reservoir slipped and deformed, and over 28,000 people were evacuated, according to the China News Agency. Heavy rains affected Hubei Province since July 4, 2020 (YNET Beiqing Net | Hubei No.1 Medium-sized Reservoir Disperses and Slopes to Displace More Than 28,000 People).




The South China Morning Post reported Sunday July 12, 2020 that a heavy downpour and a release of floodwater from the Yangtze River upstream, brought the water level to an all-time high of more than 22.5 meters (74 feet). Towns and villages that are downstream from the dyke that surrounds China’s largest freshwater lake, Poyang Lake, are at risk of flooding.

Citizens and officials, such as Wu Shengsong who works as an official in the village of Wanli near Poyang Lake, China’s largest freshwater lake, are watching for signs of breaches at river banks and dykes.

Experts have warned that the Three Gorges Dam, upriver from Poyang Lake, is on the brink of collapse.

Epoch Times reported Monday July 13, 2020 that a video circulating on Chinese social media is highlighting concern over the China’s food security. The video alleges a granary of a major state-run grain stockpiler is full of moldy, poor-quality corn. Mold is a common problem in the food supply during the normal rainy season every June and July, but may be worse this year.

Six earthquakes struck China in two days (6:08); Three Gorges Dam hit its limit (1:00); and experts say China’s Poyang Lake looks set to spill (Epoch Times).

Flooding scenes (2:19); and’Rain’ and ‘waterfalls’ spotted inside China’s tallest building — Shanghai Tower at 501 Yincheng Middle Road, Lujiazui, Pudong, Shanghai (4:20). Videos surfaced online showing water pouring down from leaking ceilings, soaking floors and offices .

Wuhan raises flood alert level as rains batter China and possible food shortages become a concern (see 2:33); US Navy, B-52 bomber in South China Sea drills (5:41).
