Floods in the Chinese province of Sichuan. The element hit with redoubled force as a result of heavy rains that have not given residents peace since the beginning of June.

In the Mianning district of Sichuan, water washed over the highway, as a result of which two cars fell into the river. Five passengers were rescued, but two people were killed and another three were found missing.
