Several days of heavy rain and flooding in southeast China's province of Jiangxi have left nearly 1.08 million people affected and forced more than 60 000 to evacuate.

According to Xinhua, floods in the province began on June 28.

In 5 days to July 2, when the rains finally stopped, 55 county-levels with a total of nearly 1.08 people were affected, 156 homes were destroyed and 219 damaged.

Authorities relocated 63 000 people and reported damage on at least 70 300 ha (173 715 acres) of crops.

Direct economic loss is estimated at about 161 million U.S. dollars.

Le'an River was above the danger mark in 3 locations in the province on July 3 while the Xinjiang river stood slightly above the danger mark in Yingtan.

Jiangxi has a typical northern subtropical monsoon climate. Its rainy season starts in April, with May and June the wettest, and ends in July.

Widespread flooding continues in the country's north — Heilongjiang Province and Inner Mongolia Region.
