The Associated Press reported, “More than 500,000 people in 17 cities and counties in Guizhou were affected, the news agency said. About 6,700 houses were damaged since rains started to fall.” Lightening and thunder continue to take lives in the central Hubei province and Hunan province. Countless citizens have been stranded due to the heavy precipitation.
