The most deadly natural disaster ever recorded which estimated deaths from 1.3 million to 4 million. This year alone, as many as 28 provinces in China are affected by floods and many have been killed by the recent mudslide/landslide in Gansu provinces. Death toll from last week til today amounts to 1239 and 500+ are still missing. 

China observes national day of mourning for the mudslide victims today.
