BEIJING (AP) - State media in China report that over a quarter million people have been evacuated because of floods along the country's northern border with North Korea.
The official Xinhua News Agency says heavy rains over
the last several days caused the Yalu river to rise over its banks, although the water level had started to fall by late Sunday.
The news agency also says four people have died, including a couple in their 70s and a mother and son, after their homes were swept away by flash floods. Xinhua says the Yalu river has risen to its highest level in a decade.
An official with the Water Resources Department has confirmed that four people have died.
