#AceBreakingNews – Flash floods in south-west and north-west China have left at least a dozen dead and put thousands of others in harm’s way, Chinese state media says.

In the south-western province of Sichuan, at least six people have died and another 12 are missing after torrential rain triggered flash floods, state-owned news outlet CGTN reported.

Some 1,300 people had been evacuated as of Saturday, the report said.

Meanwhile, in Longnan city in the north-western province of Gansu, another six deaths were reported and 3,000 people have been evacuated, state broadcaster CCTV said.

Rainfall in over a day and a half was as much as 98.9 millimetres in the worst affected areas, almost double the July average.

The rains come amid a heatwave in parts of China, including eastern Zhejiang province and the city of Shanghai, with temperatures soaring as high as 42 degrees Celsius last week.

Experts say such extreme weather events are becoming more likely because of climate change.

Warmer air can store more water, leading to bigger cloudbursts when it is released.

The flooding adds to economic woes brought on partly by stringent ‘Zero-COVID’ measures restricting travel and disrupting supply chains.

China is not the only country experiencing extreme weather this northern summer.

In Germany, low water levels in the Rhine river, due to droughts, have disrupted the supply chain for commodities into the country.

Heatwaves have triggered devastating wildfires across Europe, burning thousands of hectares of land and killing several people in France, Portugal, Spain and Greece.

On Saturday, the UK’s weather agency issued its first-ever “red warning” of extreme heat for Monday and Tuesday, when temperatures in England are forecast to reach 40C.

Heatwaves have also hit the southern part of the US, with temperatures expected to soar over 38C in the coming days.
