An article recently posted on ChinaDaily at explains that heavy rains recently have been responsible for several deaths within China after major landslides have occurred due to the rains. Apparently Bejing, one of the most well known cities even, has reported about seven deaths and several others missing over the past three days.

South and Central China have been hit the hardest and many cities have seen up to a 50% increase in their normal rain which can be too much for any city to handle even in urban areas that have good sewer and flood systems to protect themselves.

Roughly 70,000 people had to be evacuated as the damage and potential for destruction and injury was so great!
