China Hit By Typhoon Chanthu-Pictures

24 07 2010

Typhoon Chanthu made a landfall on Guangdong province Thursday noon, July 22, 2010.

Typhoon is a natural disaster.

It brought strong winds up to 126 kilometers per hour and very heavy rain.

It made the bad flood in China even worse.

2 people were killed when the very strong wind knocked down a wall.

It then weaken to a tropical storm.

In Hong Kong the heavy rain caused a bad flood and killed 1 person.

This is the worst storm that hit Hong Kong in 30 years.

The storm will cause heavy rain as it continue its journey to other parts of China.

China Flooding Kills 701 In Worst Toll In A Decade-Photos

21 07 2010

There is a bad flood in China now.

It is a disaster.

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.

I think that the people in China must stop doing things that hurt the environment.

They should stop cutting down trees and stop polluting the rivers and the air.

All these make a flood worse.

China's Three Gorges Dam project on the Yangtze River stood its biggest flood-control test at 8 a.m. Tuesday since completion, as the flow on the river's upper reaches topped 70,000 cubic meters a second. All ferry services were halted at the Three Gorges Dam on Monday, and would be resumed after the influx decreased to 45,000 cubic meters per second. (Xinhua/Cheng Min) (zgp)
