Drone footage captures extent of flooding in southern China

Floods swamped cities in southern China's densely populated Pearl River Delta on Monday following record-breaking rains.

Drone footage on Monday from the southern Chinese city of Qingyuan showed the extent of the flooding. While some residents counted their losses, others worried about more serious disasters in the future.

Guangdong province, once dubbed the "factory floor of the world", is prone to summer floods. Its defenses against disruptive floods were severely tested in June 2022 when the province was pounded by the heaviest downpours in six decades. Hundreds of thousands of people were evacuated.
