Thousands of people have been stranded and at least five killed amid torrential rain throughout central and southern China, with authorities bracing for at least another four days of downpours.

The floods had wiped out 10,800 hectares of crops and destroyed hundreds of houses in Jiangxi province by Monday, the China Daily said. In the region of Guangxi, 20,000 households had their power cut.

The meteorological administration said rain in parts of Jiangxi and Hunan had hit record highs for June.
