There is a bad flood in China now.
701 people were killed by the flood and 347 are missing.
Three quarter of China’s provinces were hit by the flood.
25 rivers have reached record-high water level.
Heavy rain on the hillsides caused lots of landslides.
Lots and lots of houses and buildings were damaged.
The water level at the Three Gorges Dam is at record high.
It is now just 20m below the dam’s maximum capacity.
Three Gorges Dam is the biggest hydro power dam in the world.
The dam is on the Yangtze River.
Yangtze River is the longest river in China.
They should stop cutting down trees and stop polluting the rivers and the air.
All these make a flood worse.

There was no earthquake in Kuala Terenggganu.
It was a man made disaster and not a natural disaster!
The heritage buildings were very beautiful and so strong.
They were more than 100 years old but did not collapsed on their own.
We should have kept the buildings and paint them to make them more beautiful.
But a government demolished a row of strong historical buildings using bulldozers.
If I can go to the United Nations I’ll tell everybody to stop destroying historical heritage buildings.
We should make a law to protect historical buildings.

Gaza City (CNN) — The death toll rose to three Friday from Israeli airstrikes along the Gaza Strip, officials said.
Israeli Defense Forces said it launched four airstrikes along the Gaza Strip on Thursday, targeting a weapons shop and two smuggling tunnels.
Israel routinely targets the Rafah tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border, which it says Hamas uses to smuggle weapons into Palestinian territory.
Palestinians say the tunnels are needed to get basic food supplies that are not available in Gaza.
I am sad to read about more airstrikes in Gaza.
I wrote about war in Palestine in January last year.
War is very, very bad.
War is bad because it can destroy our Earth.
We have to save our Earth as in Earth Song by Micheal Jackson.
