5 million now affected by flooding and landslides in China

June 19, 2011BEIJING – More than 5 million people have been displaced or otherwise affected by flooding in eastern China that is also pushing up food prices, state media reported Sunday. Torrential rains have left huge areas of Hubei and Zhejiang provinces under water, with more than 1 million acres of farmland inundated, the official Xinhua News Agency said. Almost 1,000 businesses have been forced to suspend operations and 5.7 million people have had their lives disrupted, Xinhua said in a brief report. More than 7,000 homes collapsed or were otherwise damaged and direct financial damage was estimated at almost 6 billion yuan. The downpour triggered a mudslide that buried houses and killed two people in Zhejiang’s Changshan county, while two more were killed and two left missing by flooding in Hubei, Xinhua said. Flooding in eastern and southern China this month has left more than 170 people dead or missing. Roads and railways have been blocked, but aid supplies are arriving and the country’s weather bureau says skies are expected to clear up Monday. Farmers quoted by Xinhua said the flooding was the worst in 20 years, reducing vegetable output by 20 percent and also causing shortages of fruits and grains. Prices for green vegetables were up 40 percent, Xinhua said, adding to an inflation rate of 5.5 percent, a three-year high. –CBS News

      Actually, it is only a wrong translation from CCAV. At first I thought to myself, how could mirage be formed in places other than desert? Then after examining the video carefully, what turns out to be the truth is only a mist over the fast-running river. And this mist inspired the local to awe at the spectacular view of the river.

      The only problem with this event is that 10 days ago it was the most severe drought since recorded meteorologic history, 10 days later it becomes a flood disaster with mudslide in the whole area as large as the entire Europe (the Yangtze River Area, half of China’s size)

    In light of what the poster leaving under the of ” guest” June 19, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    I’m leaving a reply – in many ways stands with his or her’s.

    While doing research I came up on this: From Wikipedia ( viewed it as a “bingo” moment.

    It reads: The Unparalleled Invasion is a science fiction story by Jack London in 1910.

    [Plot]

    “The Unparalleled Invasion” begins in 1910s China. Under the influence of Japan, China modernizes and has its own Meiji Reforms. In 1922, China breaks away from Japan and fights a brief war that culminates in the Chinese annexation of the Japanese possessions of Korea, Formosa, and Manchuria. Over the next half century, China’s population steadily grows, and eventually migration overwhelms European colonies in Asia. The United States of America and the other Western powers launch a biological warfare campaign against China, resulting in the decimation of China’s population. China is then colonized by the Western powers.

    [Controversy]

    “The Unparalleled Invasion” has been controversial for its depiction of genocide and is often cited as evidence of London’s racism. The genocide, described in considerable detail, is throughout the book described as justified and “the only possible solution to the Chinese problem,” and nowhere is there mentioned any objection to it. The then-commonly accepted phrases “yellow Race,” “yellow crowds in streets,” “yellow faces,” and similar racial epithets are frequently used throughout the story. It ends with the “sanitation of China” and its re-settlement by Western settlers.

    My point: sometimes truth is hidden in fiction.

    Regardless, something is happening – it’s planned – and similar incidents are happening around the world simultaneously.

      Sorry I do not buy into the genocide conspiracy of the so-called illuminati or reptilian story. So let B. Gates or Buffett to take care of their .5 billion target.

      I don’t believe in the HAARP project either, the drought in China was caused by the Glorious Magnificent Marvelous Dam(n), and the gv has finally come to admit “there is a mild and slight problem with the Damn”. But to my speculation, they might have regretted this announcement if they had waited 10 more days.

      If you’re interested in the genocide stuff, try to dig out 1918 Spanish inflenza, and link it to the E coli now, you are in for big big surprise~

        Guest, I agree with what you said about the E. Coli, I have read either here or on stan deyo that there is bubonic plague dna attached to this e. coli, which makes it biowarfare and intentional. Scary stuff!

    Susan you want to read about some intentional as well as scary stuff?

    Then it is a must that your read about Dr. Mary Sherman. Ed Haslam wrote about her murder entitled: Dr. May’s Monkey. Dr. Sherman used monkeys in her laboratory.

    Hence the name of the book, I suppose.
