AN event THAT happened in China source..
Flood Pains in Hunan Name Institution Flood Pains in Hunan Description China has experienced many geological events, which have left many in pain due to loss of homes, properties, and loved ones. My uncle who lives in Hunan province is telling one such painful story. One day in July 2014, as he and his family were at home relaxing, it started raining. The raining continued for a moment, and what seemed as normal rain turned deadly. My uncle told me that water levels started to rise and people started running for safety. Floodwater on the roads swept away some cars and submerged others. Pedestrians also had a rough time crossing the roads. They had to tie their waists with ropes to prevent themselves from being swept away by the speeding water. The large amount of water swallowed the city and formed a lake.
