Beijing: Eighteen people were killed and over 15 others were reported missing after floods hit Jilin city of China, local authorities said on Monday.
Heavy rains in the central and eastern parts of Jilin province since last week left much of the region inundated.
The city of Jilin was severely flooded and more than 110,000 people had to be relocated, according to the city flood control and drought relief office.
A 32,360-strong search and rescue team has been deployed in the city to remove the sludge and debris, repair bridges, and reconnect households to telecommunications and electricity networks.
