Chinese floods kill 15, displace 400,000Some maybe liking the rain, I do , today we have rain after two weeks of burning sun with 28degrees at night to 15 degrees midday to day..
But , too much water can be deadly ....

Days of torrential rains in southern and central China have forced more than 300,000 people to flee their homes, the state-run Xinhua news agency says.

Deadly floods hit China, Vietnam

Floods, landslides and houses toppled by the rain killed at least 16 people in Hunan, Fujian and Guangxi provinces. A number of people are still missing.

In Guangxi, the army and residents were struggling to shore up a breached dyke at the base of a water reservoir.

At least 15 people died in neighbouring Vietnam, officials say.
There are fears the death toll in the two countries will rise further.
Both are prone to major flooding during the annual summer rainy season.

And will there be floods in Mumbai 24th of Juli ??
I add it here so I dont have to make a new thread on it..

Floods - 2009 : Mumbai

Floods in Mumbai are attributable to simultaneous occurrence of rainfall and high tides. If the rainfall is in excess of 200 mm in a day (24 hrs) the floods can occur anytime irrespective of the tides. However, if there is moderate rainfall but the tides are in excess of 4.50 meters at the same time, the city of Mumbai is sure to get flooded.
Accordingly, heavy floods are anticipated on the following days in Mumbai, if there is excessive rainfall at the time of high tides, since the tides are extremely high on these days: -
Date Day Time Height of Tide (Meters)

24 June 2009 Wednesday 1:41 PM 4.95
25 June 2009 Thursday 2:24 PM 4.97
23 July 2009 Thursday 1:23 PM 5.01
24 July 2009 Friday 2:03 PM 5.05
25 July 2009 Saturday 2:43 PM 4.94

BMC has already planned to keep the schools closed on 24 July 2009 since the tide level is record high of last 100 years on this day.
Mumbaikars are, therefore, requested to cooperate with the administration by restricting their movements and certainly not to take their vehicles out on the roads these days.

Also, please advise your friends and relatives outside Mumbai not to plan a trip to Mumbai on these days.
