China has experienced 21 numbered floods (floods of a certain large scale) so far in 2020, 1.6 times more than that of previous years, hitting a historical record since 1998.

The floods occurred in the six main river basins in China, including the Yangtze River and Yellow River.

A total of 833 rivers in China have gone above warning levels, 80 percent more than in the same period of that year, said China’s Ministry of Water Resources in a statement on Tuesday.

Among them, 267 rivers were over the safety level and 77 reached historical record highs.  

In 2020, the national average rainfall reached 616 mm, 13 percent more than the same period of the previous year and the second highest since 1961. 

Moderate to heavy rain is still expected in the following three days in some parts of China’s western and southern areas, with torrential rain in some cities in Southwest China’s Guizhou, Yunnan and Sichuan provinces and South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Water levels in some major rivers in Northeast China are still over the limit or warning lines. The ministry and other authorities vowed to continue conducting solid flood control work as the country has now entered the late-stage flood season.

The emergency response to floods in China remains at level-IV. Two working groups from the ministry are still in Northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province, helping to guide the local flood defense work.

This is how the rest of the world is telling China not to continue as they are, they are going to screw it up. They are going to pay for it with their lives. Good luck to you all.

    Footage showing a U-Haul truck full of ‘riot supplies’ being unloaded ahead of protests in Louisville has raised questions about the organizers behind the demonstrations, which turned violent after nightfall, with two cops there shot and wounded.

    The rented box truck was spotted at 2pm on Wednesday, as Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron was still speaking at a press conference about the grand jury findings in the Breonna Taylor case.

    The grand jury’s decision not to charge Louisville officers directly in Taylor’s March 13 shooting death during the execution of a search warrant outraged protesters, who from the onset were equipped with shields and masks delivered in the mysterious truck.

    Video from the scene shows the truck being unloaded with large signs reading ‘abolish the police’, ‘abolition now’ and featuring the three-arrow logo associated with the far-left Antifa movement.

    I have seen another thing Black Lives Matter and ISIS Flag has
    a 90 percent commonality. Both of them are made same parts Black and is written BLM and ISIS written on their flag.
    I know that fact he BLM was hijacked by Hamas, Terrorist arms of Iranian GOV and CARE and Islam o Fascist in North America. I ask all Black Lives Matter please change your flag ASAP other wise you are being hijacked. You want your flag be
    very well shown , Black Flag and written BLM is hard to read and yet you do not know your flag is represents almost very identical to ISIS flag. Please make corrections ASAP??
    This is just an advise we do not have problem with any one.

  3. Well we hope China GOV go to hell but people of China are not at fault either. Now we go back live USA after midnight protests.
    USA is burning we took the bait now end games started already.
