After Yangtze River, Heavy Rain And Massive Floods Hits China’s Yellow River Basin

After severe flooding in the Yangtze River drainage area in July, heavy rain has now hit another major waterway in China, the Yellow River. A 646-year-old building in Xi’an city, located in western China and midstream of the Yellow River, partially collapsed on Aug. 8, injuring at least four people. Floodwaters inundated cities and villages in Shaanxi, Shanxi, and Henan provinces, also located midstream of the Yellow River. At the same time, authorities discharged floodwaters from downstream to rural areas of Shandong Province on the eastern coast.
