Floods in China have killed 377 people in 2010 and left 142 missing, while over 368,000 homes were destroyed, an official statement said Friday.
Floods this year have affected 64.57 million people in the country’s 22 provinces. Over four million hectares of crops were inundated, Xinhua reported citing a statement released by the Office of State Flood Control and Drought Relief.
A total of 4.35 million people were evacuated due to the floods, which also caused economic loss reaching 75.6 billion yuan ($11.13 billion), the statement said.
Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, who visited flood-hit Fuzhou city in Jiangxi province Thursday to review disaster relief efforts, asked local officials to send more relief materials to ensure that basic needs of flood victims are met.
