China – Worst flooding in at least 71 years

Some claim it is the worst on record. See video.

Authorities predict that the flood will peak on Monday afternoon.

It is estimated that the water level of Chengdu’s Jintang County, which is located on the upper reaches of the Tuo River, will exceed the “safe level” by 3.85 meters and maximum peak discharge will climb to 8,200 cubic meters per second. This will set a new record at least since the founding of communist China 71 years ago.

Judging from the historical records of the Jintang Sanhuangmiao Hydrological Station since 1949, the highest flow rate recorded was 8,100 cubic meters per second in 1981. If it reaches 8,200 cubic meters per second this time, it means that the flood peak will set an all-time record, reported

  1. Try researching the floods in 1877 and 1931.

    The Yellow River floods in 1887 are estimated to have killed 1 to 2 MILLION people.

    The nationwide floods in 1931 are estimated to have killed between 2.5 and 4 MILLION people.

    Does that put current events into human perspective??

  2. abc radio briefly mentioned flooding in china today
    not the scale or duration
    just it had been raining for a week n flooding
    rain for near a month n serious damage
    but then Xi is now attacking aussie wine imports as dumping
    same stunt for barley n meat last months
    I hope they can find stuff elsewhere cos our suppliers are getting jacked off bigtime

  3. Good news for American farmers! We’ll wait till they beg us for grain and we’ll sell it to them triple the price!

  4. … and it’ll be deja vu all over again for the Irish Americans… nothing to do with eugenics and “free-market” profits.

    According to economist Cormac O’ Grada, more than 26 million bushels of grain were exported from Ireland to England in 1845, a “famine” year. Even greater exports are documented in the Spring 1997 issue of History Ireland by Christine Kinealy of the University of Liverpool. Her research shows that nearly 4,000 vessels carrying food left Ireland for ports in England during “Black ’47” while 400,000 Irish men, women and children died of starvation.

    Shipping records indicate that 9,992 Irish calves were exported to England during 1847, a 33 percent increase from the previous year. At the same time, more than 4,000 horses and ponies were exported. In fact, the export of all livestock from Ireland to England increased during the famine except for pigs. However, the export of ham and bacon did increase. Other exports from Ireland during the “famine” included peas, beans, onions, rabbits, salmon, oysters, herring, lard, honey and even potatoes.
    Dr. Kinealy’s research also shows that 1,336,220 gallons of grain-derived alcohol were exported from Ireland to England during the first nine months of 1847. In addition, a phenomenal 822,681 gallons of butter left starving Ireland for tables in England during the same period. If the figures for the other three months were comparable, more than 1 million gallons of butter were exported during the worst year of mass starvation in Ireland.

    The food was shipped from ports in some of the worst famine-stricken areas of Ireland, and British regiments guarded the ports and graineries to guarantee British merchants and absentee landlords their “free-market” profits.

  5. I agree that these psychos love to blame their genocides on nature or on pandemics.. viruses just being another aspect of nature. Its all about destroying our bond with nature and villainizing her instead of aiming our anger at the true culprits.
