Massive flooding continued to wreak havoc in China’s northeastern Liaoning province over the weekend, with over 127,000 people evacuated from the worst-hit regions, the New York Times reported. Officials said that the Yalu river which divides China and North Korea overflowed its banks, leading to the death of four people in the border city of Dandong. No end is in sight for the torrential rains, which after a brief pause are expected to continue well into this week. The government estimated the floods have caused at least US$100 million in damage to homes and buildings. The Liaoning flooding comes on the heels of recent inclement weather in northwestern Gansu province, which triggered mudslides that have killed at least 1,400 people.
