Floods caused by torrential rains continue to plague Northeast China's Jilin Province. 122 people are dead or missing.

The provincial Civil Affairs Department says more than 4 million people have been affected since the flood season began in June. Some 700 thousand people have been evacuated. In the hardest-hit areas, flash floods and landslides isolated five counties and towns.

Relief work is progressing with difficulty in Huadian City. Communications, power and water supplies there have been disrupted. The provincial government has allocated relief funds and goods to flood-hit areas to ensure people's daily necessities.
