Thousands starnded in China flooding
Flooding in northeastern China has stranded 30,000 people in one town and washed 1,000 barrels of explosive chemicals into a river.
BBC reports say in Kouqian town in Jilin province, residents were trapped when a reservoir and two rivers overflowed following torrential rain.
In Jilin city itself, containers of explosive fluid from a chemical plant were washed into the Songhua river.
China is facing its worst flooding in more than a decade.
Weeks of heavy rain have swollen rivers and caused damage, landslides and bridge collapses across a swathe of the country.
According to state media, 928 people have died because of the seasonal bad weather and another 477 are missing.
