China Floods

At least 700,000 people are now reported to have fled rising flood waters in southern China, as rainstorms continue to drench large areas of the country.

Twenty people are also reported to have died in some of the worst flooding seen in China for more than a decade.

Across several provinces heavy rains have toppled houses, flooded roads and seriously damaged a dam, according to China's official Xinhua News Agency.

In some towns and cities main roads have been rendered impassable by waters up to 2.5 metres deep.
