|Flooding death toll exceeds 100, Liaoning worst affected
Devastating floods at opposite ends of China have left 105 people dead and another 115 missing in recent days, state media said.
Flooding in the northeast which left 72 people dead was described as “the worst in decades'' by Xinhua.
Another 33 people died in the south, Xinhua said citing the ministry of civil affairs.
Liaoning, the worst-hit province, had 54 fatalities and another 97 people missing, Xinhua said.
The worst-hit province in the south, battered by typhoon Utor last week, was Guangdong (pictured) where 22 people were dead and eight missing, it added.
Transport links were crippled, affecting tens of thousands of travelers.
Some services from Guangzhou railway station, Guangdong's most important transport hub, were suspended due to rain and landslides.
State media said 80,000 passengers were stranded over the weekend because of the disruption.
Services were beginning to return to normal, the station said in a statement on its website. –AFP
