China has been struck disastrously with heavy rain and landslides continuing from the last three days. Economically, it is the second most severe disaster in the history of China, claimed 75 and affected millions.
Over 1.5 million people have lost their homes in the heavy rain followed by floods. People are facing problems of food, shelter and clean water. Women, children and old people are more vulnerable to dirty water and rescue operations.
Rehabilitation camps have been set up for the affected population, over three million people have taken shelter with the help of Chinese agencies working day and night for the proper rehabilitation and safety.
Flood has taken millions of hectares of land under its reach thus making the rescue operations more dangerous. Electricity supply has been stalled due to the threat of its conduction which could claim more lives.
There is a glimmer of hope that things will get better with the end of the week but as the water clears from the land, deadly diseases might take the toll higher.
