China floods kill 62, over 1 million flee

Beijing: At least 62 were killed in torrential rain and flooding across south China, the government said. Floods pose a threat to Gaungxi province if the embankment of Xijiang river bursts open, while four other rivers have crossed danger levels, officials said. Over one million people left their homes and moved to safer places as heavy rains made water levels in rivers soar and overflow into settlements close to them across nine provinces in the country.
