|BEIJING Stephen Strasburg Nationals Jersey , April 27 (Xinhua) -- Severe floods are forecast along the upper and middle reaches of the Yangtze River in this summer, as well as some nearby rivers and lakes.
Major rivers have seen more water inflows than average this year, Zhang Jiatuan, a spokesperson for the Office of State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters, said Thursday at a press conference.
Among them, the Huai River saw the largest increase of around 80 percent, and the Yangtze River as much as 40 percent. Water levels are higher than usual.
The main rainbelt will likely cover those areas during the period, adding to risks of floods.
"The situation is grim," Zhang said, urging local governments to closely track weather conditions and improve flood control measures.
Zhang also warned of droughts in northwestern, northeastern, and some southern regions in the coming months.

SAN FRANCISCO, April 11 (Xinhua) -- Shingtsa Tenzinchodrak, a living buddha of Tibetan Buddhism, liked to tell stories of himself during his stay in the United States.
Leading a delegation of the National People's Congress (NPC) of China, Tenzinchodrak toured San Francisco and Houston from April 7 through 11 to promote Tibet Autonomous Region, where he is serving as vice-chairman of the Standing Committee of the People's Congress.
Now aged 64, Tenzinchodrak remembers himself being recognized at the age of five as a reincarnated living buddha, thus starting to learn reading and writing from religious scholars, and then became a teacher at a village school when he was nine years old. As shown in his profile, he taught at three schools from 1950 to 1964.
The matter of fact, he told reporters and some scholars at Stanford University in California, was that very few people a half century ago in Tibet had a chance to go to school and far fewer people had basic skills needed to teach kids.
The difference, as he tried to explain to people in the United States, including several members of the House of Representatives (upper house), was that Tibet now has a system providing the population with education through primary and secondary schools and institutions of higher learning.
The changes in Tenzinchodrak's lifetime have been the result of steady rise of social-economic status of Tibetans within China, with tremendous resources pouring in from China's central government and ongoing assistance from other provinces and regions across the country.
It is the second time for Tenzinchodrak, a member of the NPC, to head the top legislature's delegation on overseas missions to promote Tibet. The first tour, in 2009, took him to U.S. cities of Washington D.C. and New York and then to Canada.
The next year, 2010, the village hosting the Shingtsa Temple, from which Tenzinchodrak got his first name because of the reincarnation in 1955, started to get electricity supply from the nation's power grid, a development he had deemed remotely possible in 50 years due to difficulties imposed by the village's high altitude above sea level and the sparse locations of villagers' households.
He rejected the notion that his role as a top regional legislator could have helped his village neighbors to connect with power grid.
Notifying that he and other key members of his delegation are "people on the ground at the snow covered (Tibetan) plateau," meaning they know more about what is going on there, Tenzinchodrak prides himself for the facts that the average life span of Tibetans is 68.2 years now compared with 35.5 years in 1959, and that one third of the land in the autonomous region has been in the national registry for conservation.
Asked about his plan for retirement, Tenzinchodrak said he would spend most or at least more of his time at the Shingtsa Temple.
DAMASCUS, April 2 (Xinhua) -- As the Islamic State (IS) group started to take a beating in Iraq, chances are high that its fighters will intensify their presence in Syria, analysts say.
On Wednesday, the Iraqi forces, backed by Shiite militiamen, retook the city of Tikrit northwest of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, which paves the way for the Iraqi forces to drive the extremists out of the city of Mousul and the capital of Nineveh province.
Across the border in Syria, analysts believe that the retreat of the IS extremists in Iraq, even though it's a positive thing for the Iraqis, could increase the negative impacts on Syria as this group has an increasing influence in the war-torn country, where it is not suffering defeats like those in Iraq, but even advancing more.
On Wednesday, the terrorist group attacked and captured almost 70 percent of a main camp for Palestinian refugees south of the capital Damascus as their comrades were losing ground in Tikrit.
"Of course the decline of the Islamic State group in Iraq is positive in terms of weakening this terrorist group and cut its fund lines by depriving them from using the Iraqi oil, but eventually we are (Syrians) the ones suffering from the negative repercussions," said Maher Murhej, head of the Syrian Youth Party.
Murhej said "thousands of Iraqi militants with the IS will flee to Syria when they start suffering more defeats in Iraq."
Another analyst, Mahmour Muri, told Xinhua that "apparently there is a regional and international decision to defeat the IS in Iraq but there is no similar one to defeat it in Syria."
He added that the U.S., which has led a co. Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Cheap Custom Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Online Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China
