Floods kill at least 76 in South China
by UPI

NANNING, China - At least 76 people have been killed by floods and severe storms in southern China in recent weeks.

Almost 3 million people have been affected by rainstorms and flooding since June 6, Xinhua, the official government news agency, reported Thursday.

In the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, 15 people have been killed since June 6. The deaths of two people were reported Wednesday -- one killed by lightning and the other by a landslide.

Authorities have been struggling to get supplies to villages cut off by flooded roads and to restore electricity.

The town of Huangjin, Guangdong Province, was cut off for five days, the Ministry of Civil Affairs said. Trucks loaded with rice finally got through Wednesday. Villagers had been drinking rainwater.

An estimated 38,000 people have been forced out of their homes in Guangxi.
