This week in Oklahoma,our nation was riveted as we witnessed devastating flooding and the subsequent rescue missions that followed it.

In Arkansas many lives were taken, recently, by flash floods that swept through a city without prior warning.(SOURCE)

Today, news out of China, is as bleak as what has happened in America’s heartland as we have been enduring killer floods, as reports are stating that over 90 people have perished in devastating floods that have run rampant through several provinces including Fujian, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Hunan, Sichuan, Jiangxi and Guizhou and the autonomous region of Guangxi.

After months of punishing drought, China’s rainy season has returned with a vengeance, causing floods and landslides that as of Saturday were blamed for 90 deaths.

An estimated 1.4 million people have been evacuated. On Saturday, China’s Ministry of Civil Affairs raised alert levels because of forecasts by the National Meteorological Center of torrential rains in southern and central China in the coming week.(SOURCE)

Economic losses caused by the heavy rains have topped 10 billion yuan (about US $1.46 billion), officials said.
