China is facing the worst flooding in the past 30 years since June amid the economic pressure and health crisis with the coronavirus. 33 swelling rivers and lakes reached record-high levels while 433 rivers are on a high alert level. The flooding has caused the death of 140 people, affected 38 million others, and destroyed 28,000 homes according to government tallies. President Xi Jinping is calling out officials on evacuating the affected residents to a safer area. Authorities said that the worst-hit provinces were Jiangxi, Hubei, and Hunan in central China, Anhui, Zhejiang, and Jiangsu in the country’s east, and the southwestern mega-city of Chongqing.
