China floods: Dozens dead and thousands displaced in Henan | DW News

A clean-up operation is underway in China’s central Henan province after devastating floods. Days of heavy rain has left much of the region submerged. At least 33 people have been killed, thousands displaced and many are still missing. But there was a moment of hope when rescuers pulled a three-month-old baby from a collapsed building in Zhengzhou City. Local media say the baby was buried under the rubble for a day and a night before being found. The child is now in hospital and in stable condition.
Many areas in Henan province still lack basic services – and residents are taking stock of the devastation.
Flood waters rushed through Gongyi city, near the capital of Henan province. Leaving behind not only an immense clean up, but also an immeasurable sense of loss.
Things won’t be returning to normal anytime soon. With authorities struggling to cope with the scale of the disaster.
Days of heavy rains have brought cities in Henan province to a standstill. Stranded residents wait for rescue boats or heavy machinery to carry them to safety.
Even now, the scale of the disaster is still emerging. Subway commuters watch the waters fill up the carriages all the way up to their necks. Many died in this incident on Wednesday – before emergency workers could reach those trapped inside.
Horrific images like these creating widespread anger that authorities didn’t shut down trains earlier.
More than three million people in Henan province have been affected by the record rains, with tens of thousands now living in emergency shelters. Others have been out on the streets, picking through the mud to see what remains.

    JESUS ​​CHRIST will be back soon!
    Please, turn to GOD, invoke HIM, because ONLY HE can save you and give you protection against what is coming into this world. The earth is cursed under its inhabitants
    because they have defiled GOD'S LAW. Please read the BIBLE, confess your
    sins to GOD, turn away from them, from all churches, religions and
    worship GOD in SPIRIT and TRUTH, because GOD IS THE SPIRIT and does not
    live in any buildings built by human hands. May GOD be with you.

  4. This is what happens when you have a communist involved in the construction of the dam. Of course, the contractor was allowed to cut as many corners as possible and he the (foreman or inspector} split the shaved cash between them. Then ten years have passed the communist crook and his accomplice are long gone when the dam gives way right where the skipped support was supposed to be. Thousands die and the reason the dam broke is covered up by the crooked communist government.
