The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “China floods: Thousands evacuated after 12 die in ‘worst rain for 1,000 years'” – below is their description.
At least 12 people have died in severe flooding in central China caused by what weather forecasters said was the heaviest rain in a millennium.
Rainfall over the past three days was almost on par with the city’s annual average. Twenty centimetres pelted down in just one hour on Tuesday in Zhengzhou, the local capital of Henan province.
Large swaths of Henan, China’s bread basket, remained under water on Wednesday as authorities evacuated about 100,000 people to safe zones, according to state media.
“Flood-prevention efforts have become very difficult,” Chinese leader Xi Jinping said in a statement broadcast on state television.
