Over 100,000 Chinese Evacuated As Floods Continue Pressuring Three Gorges Dam

Since early summer, devastating floods have wreaked havoc in southern China due to torrential rains caused by the rainy season, with most of the flooding observed around the Yangtze basin and its tributaries.

China's largest river, the Yangtze, continues to rise to dangerous levels after another round of rainfall. More than 100,000 people on Tuesday, in the Sichuan province, were evacuated from their homes, reported Reuters.

Some 63 million people have been affected by the floods, with economic damage totaling $26 billion.

A red alert was issued late Tuesday by the water commission, who said some monitoring stations along the river were expected to rise above flood protection levels. The ministry also warned about the Three Gorges Dam, indicating water inflow levels continued to increase, with water inflows registering 74,000 cubic meters per second on Wednesday, the highest ever.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Judging from this imagery, it appears that many of these people affected by these floods are on course to lose everything, except possibly their lives.
