China Flooding Kills Over 180 People in 7 Provinces

More than 180 people have been killed in flooding along Yangtze River in China following torrential rain, officials say.
Between 10 cm and 50 cm of rain have fallen in seven provinces and storms stretching 1,600 km are sweeping across central and southern China.
At least 45 people are missing and 33 million are affected, officials say. The rain has also washed away railroads and shut down road networks, BBC reported.
The dead included 23 people who were killed in a mudslide in Guizhou Province and eight who died in the city of Wuhan in Hubei Province when a section of a wall collapsed, state media said.
Heavy rain is forecast to continue until Wednesday across parts of southern and western China, the South China Morning Post reported.
