BEIJING -- Floods caused by a week of torrential rains have killed 10 people and displaced more than 11,000 in the southern Chinese province of Guangxi, known for its many rivers, local media said Saturday.

Rains have been pounding the region since last weekend, causing rivers to burst their banks and damage the property of almost 193,000 residents, the Chinese state television reported.

The storms have also caused disruption in power supply in some areas. Meteorologists say the downpour is expected to continue for several more days. (Sputnik)
