    Flooding disasters are so normal in China they barely make headlines and are certainly not posted in the China forum everytime it happens.




    However we'll make sure to post them ALL now as your rainy season approaches...as a reminder of the "poor state of China" and tag you. We may have to create a sticky thread to handle the volume.

    Difference here is we knew one of the dams would fail as it was rated unsatisfactory for 2 years but did nothing to fix it.

    Unfortunately the dam is not owned by the government. It's owned by Boyce Hydro and had its license revoked in 2018.

    Lol... Posting old news to troll us compare to the current Michigan dam disaster which can be prevented if US start less war and spend more effort in domestic infrastructure.

    I guess u are desperate. Why not post wenchang earthquake 2008 to make u feel better? But it doesn't take away fact, you are a loser now in 2020. :rofl:

    I saw this on CNN, too.The dams are said to be able to withstand a 500-year flood.

    Government has the right to fix problem that is hazard to public. Simply pushing to private sector to shift the blame is not the way to do.
