Floods in Shanxi province in northern China have forced more than 120,000 people from their homes.

Local media reported 5 people died on 05 October 2021 after continuous rainstorms battered Shanxi Province. Meanwhile, more than 15 have been reported dead and there are more to come! Floods and landslides have been reported in 76 districts and cities.

China’s state news agency Xinhua reported 17,000 homes severely damaged or destroyed. A total of 1.76 million people have been affected, as of 10 October. Emergency management departments have distributed relief supplies including tents, bedding and clothing.

The heavy rain has also caused severe damage to crops and infrastructure. Local emergency management reported around 190,000 hectares of crops have been damaged.

A section railway track was washed away by floodwaters in Qixian county on 07 October.

Shanxi is a major coal producing province. The local government said it has suspended output at 60 coal mines due to the severe weather conditions. This comes at a time China is facing an energy shortage which has caused power cuts.

Unusually heavy rain has been falling in this relatively dry region from 02 to 07 October. Media, quoting the provincial meteorological bureau, said over 60 weather stations in the province reported record high accumulated precipitation figures for this period, with some area seeing 3 times the normal average rainfall.

Levels of rivers have increased, including the Yellow River, China’s second-longest river. A dyke breach along the Fenhe River, a tributary of the Yellow River, caused severe flooding in Yuncheng.

Earlier this month around 50,000 people were displaced by floods in neighbouring Shaanxi Province from 02 October, mostly in areas around Hanzhong City.

China’s Ministry of Emergency Management (MEM) recently released figures for natural disasters in the first three quarters of 2021.

A total of 792 people were dead or missing; 5.262 million people were displaced; 157,000 houses destroyed and 1.751 million damaged.

    Iran launches large-scale air defense military drill

    The exercise aims to show that Iran can defend its ‘sensitive and vital centers/’.
    Tehran, Iran – Iran’s army and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) have launched a joint military exercise with a focus on air defence that they say will encompass half the country’s airspace.

    The two-day drill, launched in Iran’s central desert area in the early hours of Tuesday, was led by the Khatam al-Anbia Air Defence Headquarters.

    As part of the exercise, which military commanders said aims to closely replicate war, manned and unmanned aerial vehicles and missiles were to be launched against ground targets in order to test the performance of air defence and radar systems.

    State television broadcast footage that showed several missiles being launched from locally manufactured air defence systems.

    Brigadier General Qader Rahimzadeh, commander-in-chief of the Khatam al-Anbia base, said the IRGC’s 3rd Khordad missile defence system and the army’s 15th Khordad system had been deployed as part of the exercise, in addition to other Iranian electronic and cyber warfare equipment.

    Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard, commander of the air defence force, said the first day of the exercise had been successful.

    “The equipment we used today are all indigenous and on the cutting edge of modern technology,” he told state television.

    It came a day after Iran unveiled Majid, a short-range air defence missile system it said could be linked with a locally manufactured radar system with a range of 30km (19 miles) and could hit targets in a range of eight km (five miles).

    • Made in the U.S.A. used to be the norm. The globalists sold out our middle-class. We made a mistake letting our manufacturing base leave for of shore. Our quality, worksmanship, and durability made American made products superior.
      We can do that again. It would take a generation, but it could be done. It will probably never happen in our generation. Too many lazy bums living off the back of taxpayers. They will soon be treated to no more welfare unless vaxxed mandates. Then they will die off in a few years.
