China witnessed 19,522 geologic hazards in the first half of this year, up 932 percent year-on-year, according to the Ministry of Land and Resources.
The disasters left 464 people dead or missing, up 177 percent over the same period last year, the ministry said.
One of the latest geological disasters occurred in Xiaohe township of Southwest China's Yunnan province on Wednesday, in which rain-triggered floods and landslides killed at least 19 people.

The article is pretty sparse on details. What is a "geological hazard" exactly? It talks about deaths and injuries. Is that the statistic they are using?
It looks like all they are comparing is the first half of this year to the first half of last year. Pretty screwy statistics. The weather wasn't so bad last year as it was this year?
