Flood Caused Garbage Islands In China’s Yangtze River-Pictures

Garbage in Yangtze River.

There are garbage islands in China’s Yangtze River after the terrible flood.

Flood caused garbage islands in China's Yangtze River

In some part, the garbage were so thick that people can stand on it.

Branches from fallen trees.

Flood caused the garbage islands by carrying garbage from one place to another and dump them into the river.

Garbage pollute the river and can cause health problems.

The flood damaged buildings and trees.

The debris from the flood caused the garbage islands too.

The Three Gorges Dam is on the Yangtze River.

The Three Gorge Dam on China's Yangtze River.

And the amount of garbage in the river could jam the gate of the dam.

The decaying garbage can also pollute the water quality.

The water will became smelly and dirty.

And there will be lots of  bad germs in the river.

The germs can kill the fishes and other animals that live in the river.

Contaminated water is bad for human too.

It can cause Cholera, diarrhoea, food poisoning, some skin diseases and other health problems.

Dangerous chemicals were also swept to the river by the flood.

I knew that flood cause garbage but I did not know that it can caused garbage islands.

This is another disaster for China.

China Flooding Kills 701 In Worst Toll In A Decade-Photos

There is a bad flood in China now.

It is a disaster.

701 people were killed by the flood and 347 are missing.

Three quarter of China’s provinces were hit by the flood.

25 rivers have reached record-high water level.

Heavy rain on the hillsides caused lots of landslides.

Lots and lots of houses and buildings were damaged.

The water level at the Three Gorges Dam is at record high.

It is now just 20m below the dam’s maximum capacity.

Three Gorges Dam is the biggest hydro power dam in the world.

The dam is on the Yangtze River.

Yangtze River is the longest river in China.

I think that the people in China must stop doing things that hurt the environment.

They should stop cutting down trees and stop polluting the rivers and the air.

All these make a flood worse.

China's Three Gorges Dam project on the Yangtze River stood its biggest flood-control test at 8 a.m. Tuesday since completion, as the flow on the river's upper reaches topped 70,000 cubic meters a second. All ferry services were halted at the Three Gorges Dam on Monday, and would be resumed after the influx decreased to 45,000 cubic meters per second. (Xinhua/Cheng Min) (zgp)
