Heavy Rain in Southern China Forces 150,000 to Flee

Reuters reports:

Torrential rain battering southern China has forced more than 150,000 people from their homes, toppled hundreds of houses and punched a dangerous hole in the spillway of a dam, Xinhua news agency reported on Saturday.

The destruction after just three days of downpours was a reminder of the havoc that parts of China may suffer during the wet summer months ahead.

The rain sweeping parts of province and region has so far killed three people with four missing, Xinhua reported.
