BEIJING, June 18 : A week of torrential rain in southern China has killed 25 people and displaced 33,200 residents, including many in China's poor, remote regions, officials said.
China's Civil Affairs Ministry says 4 million people in 10 provinces have been affected by floods and landslides since heavy rainfall began on Monday. Six people are still missing.
In southeastern Jiangxi Province, people pushed cars floating in waist-high water while online footage showed vehicles swept away, as near record levels of rainfall battered southwestern China.
The southern part of the country is hit every year during the monsoon seasons of May, June and July, but this rainy season has been particularly wet.    ?AP
