Beijing, China:

Chinese President Xi Jinping declared the lethal flooding in central China’s Henan province “extraordinarily extreme”, state media reported Wednesday, as dams burst and rivers swelled past embankments.

“Some reservoirs had their dams burst… inflicting critical harm, lack of life and property harm. The flood management scenario is extraordinarily extreme,” Xi was quoted as saying, including occasions have been at a “crucial stage”.
