The worst flooding in a decade continues in large parts of China. The death toll from floods and mudslides has risen to 991 nationwide this year. Another 558 people were missing.
Rainstorms have lashed a dozen provinces and regions, including Jilin and Liaoning in the Northeast, the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in the far west, and Guizhou Province and Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in the south. Jilin has reported more than 100 people dead or missing. 37,000 were destroyed and 125,000 others were damaged. More than 590,000 residents have been evacuated. The economic losses from natural disasters since June stand at more than nine billion yuan.
On Sunday, the reservoir level at seven of 18 large dams in the province exceeded danger levels on Sunday. In Xinjiang, recent downpours and snow-melt have pushed the region's 13 key rivers above the danger level. Mountainous areas in Aksu Prefecture were the hardest-hit part.
