12 dead, three million hit by China storms

 Bejing, Sat Jul 14 2012,

Heavy storms battered many parts of China over the last two days, killing 12 people and affecting more than 3 million others, officials have said.

The storms swept across 15 counties and cities, causing floods and landslides.

In eastern province of Shandong, four people have died, and more than 100,000 forced to evacuate from low lying areas, Xinhua reported. More than 3 million people have been affected in the province.

Floods have inundated crops, damaged houses and killed livestock. The disaster has caused an economic loss of more than 1.5 billion yuan (around USD 240 million).

Eight people were killed on Friday after rainstorms triggered landslides in the city of Liupanshui in southwest China's Guizhou Province, the city government said.
