Guangxi is among the worst-hit provinces and regions vulnerable to the pounding torrential rains, as more than 900,000 people had been affected by the rains since Saturday and one person was dead.

About 800 villagers were evacuated from Li'ao Village, Nandan County in Guangxi, after being trapped for three days. The continuous torrential rain since Thursday caused floods and landslides.
