Flooding in China over the past two weeks has left more than 170 people dead or missing and forced out residents in regions along the Yangtze River.

Trains trapped by landslides, roads blocked, 18 villages flooded when levees failed.  No, not along the Mississippi River in the US – this is along the mighty Yangtze in China.  Rains and flooding are  predicted to continue.
