China – China’s flood control authority said on Tuesday that some central and southern provinces are likely to see large floods this year as downpours swell rivers. There is a possibility of flooding along the Pearl and Huaihe rivers as well as the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River. Provinces including Guangdong, Guizhou, Hubei, Hunan and Jiangxi have seen water levels in 175 rivers rise beyond their warning levels with five rivers at record-high levels.
