China floods: Scope of damage still unclear with many missing in Henan | DW News



A massive clean-up operation is underway in China’s central Henan province following devastating floods. Days of heavy rain have left parts of the region completely submerged. At least 56 people have been killed, hundreds of thousands displaced and many are still unaccounted for.
The situation in the more rural areas outside the provincial capital – Zhenzhou – is even worse than in the city. Mathias Bölinger traveled to the town of Mihe, and sent this report.

  1. He will be famous in China after this “report”. his career might be similar to the BBC “reporter” who escape to else where.Mark my words.

    Man plz buy a ticket to Taiwan province and u can find your anti-China buds there.

  2. after reporting, this guy was surrounding by angry local residents, claim he smearing the truth of dark side China, and denounce the city image, he was almost hitted by local people.
    I am Zhengzhou local resident.

  3. What's the question of how this has happened, wait to see the amount of rain comes to your city then hope other media will do the same question to you. Dumb head.

  4. Isn't it normal that, after a disaster of such magnitude, it takes time to identify how many people are missing, dead, or injured? Counting the missing people requires looking at the population base and the scale of the disaster! Zhengzhou has a population of over 10 million inhabitants, Cities like Altenburg, Hagen in Germany are simply not at the same scale level!!! How can you simply attribute such complex situation to the transparency of government work? There are already 7 governmental officials died in the rescue! They are all just ordinary people! Zhengzhou Fire Department has handled 359 rainstorm emergency alarms and rescued 1,231 trapped people within 10 hours! But the only focus here is the government pressures the publics??!!!
