Rainfall wreaks havoc in South China

Continuous rainfall over the past two weeks has wrecked havoc in south China.

At least 61 people are confirmed dead and 14 others are missing.

Central Hubei Province has been battered by its fourth round of rainfall since entering flood season on June 18.

It is estimated to be one of the heaviest rainstorms the province has ever experienced.

Thousands of soldiers, firemen and relief workers are working around the clock to repair the breaches.

In order to aid disaster relief work, authorities allocated 3,000 tents and 3,000 folding beds to the province, in addition to 5,000 quilts.
