China In Focus (July 10): Dam Makes Flood Power 25 Times Stronger

“Rain” and “waterfalls” were spotted inside China’s tallest building. Videos surfaced online showing water pouring down from leaking ceilings, soaking floors and offices.

It’s been over a week since China’s Three Gorges Dam started to release floodwater. An expert says the water’s speed is 25 times more powerful, and potentially damaging, than a natural flood.
