Quake Stricken Sichuan On Flooding High Alert

Sichuan is on high alert as the advent of flood season puts reservoirs, dams and the quake lakes formed after the May 12 earthquake under renewed stress. Emergency evacuation plans have been put into action.

Local weather forecasters issued a flood warning last week, saying summer flooding was likely to be the worst in a decade and would come at the beginning of July, earlier than in past years because of the effect of abnormal rainfall in May that was 30%-70% more than a year earlier.
