The official death toll of flooding in China’s Henan province last month rose sharply to over 300, officials there announced Monday. Dozens are still missing. Torrential rains dropped a year’s worth of rain in just three days, setting off the flooding officials described as being at least a one-in-1,000 years event. Extreme precipitation and the flooding it can cause are both worsened by human-caused climate change. Some of the delayed accounting of the disaster’s human toll was ascribed to slow reporting, including from smaller cities in the province, though the New York Times reports Chinese officials have also been slow or reluctant to release full death tolls of similar disasters.
