FLOOD PREVENTION

Visitors gather on Friday to watch giant gushes of water being released from the Xiaolangdi dam to clear up the sediment-laden Yellow River and prevent flooding, in Jiyuan in China’s Henan Province. China is hit by heavy downpours every summer, often causing fatalities as seen in 2010, when the nation’s worst flooding in a decade left more than 4,300 people dead or missing.Jul 08, 2012
