Torrential rains, floods and landslides have left more than two hundred people dead or missing in western China. The Himalaya Mountains in Sichuan province was the hardest hit by flooding in 50 years. The downpour triggered a landslide in a hillside resort outside the city.

More than 100,000 people have been evacuated from their homes in Sichuan. Thousands of homes have been destroyed and transportation brought to a virtual standstill in hard-hit areas.

The Ministry of Civil Affairs says more than two million people have been affected by flooding this week. Also, casualties have been recorded in the northern provinces of Shaanxi and Ningxia, and even in the central provinces of Henan and Hubei.
