China allocates 177 mln yuan for flood relief
China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) on Wednesday said it has allocated relief fund totaling 177 million yuan (about 26 million U.S. dollars) for the flood-hit Shandong Province.
The fund was part of the central government's budget investment for disaster relief and emergency subsidies, which will be used for restoring infrastructure and public facilities in the disaster-hit regions, according to the NDRC.
Shandong have suffered from severe floods after Typhoon Rumbia, the 18th this year, brought heavy rains to the coastal province. As of Aug. 23, at least 3.8 million people were affected, with six dead and 15 missing, according to local authorities.
