I'm here in Seattle with the day off on the 23rd. I'll be keeping my best bottle of single malt scotch handy, because if it's as you say it is, it could be an interesting day tomorrow. Of course, if nothing happens tomorrow here in Seattle, what does that say about your time wave shift?
The downpours have triggered flash floods, inundated crops, disrupted traffic and telecommunications and forced the evacuation of 2.376 million people, the Office of State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters said on Tuesday.
A total of 195,000 houses have been destroyed and more than 1.6 million hectares of farmland damaged, pushing the direct economic losses to at least 42 billion yuan ($ 6.2 billion).
The problem worsened Tuesday after a dike burst in the Fu River in Jiangxi province, forcing about 35,000 people to flee, Xinhua said. More than 1,200 people were rescued.
