China is one of the countries most affected by natural disasters. It had 6 of the world’s top 10 deadliest natural disasters; the top 3 occurred in China: the 1931 China floods, death toll 2 million to 4 million, the 1887 Yellow River flood, death toll 0.9 million to 2 million, and the 1556 Shaanxi earthquake, death toll 0.83 million.
Here’s an example of a Chinese flood!
“Natural disasters occur frequently in China, affecting more than 200 million people every year. They have become an important restricting factor for economic and social development.”
In the course of recorded history, many types of natural disasters — except volcano eruptions — have occurred in China, which include floods, droughts, meteorological, seismic, geological, maritime and ecological disasters as well as forestry and grassland fires.
These natural disasters pose serious threats to life and property safety to China and its people and severely affect the comprehensive, coordinated and sustainable development of that country’s economy and society. In addition, they threaten China’s national security and social stability and stand in the way of economic development in some regions and poverty alleviation of certain rural population.
