Torrential rain and flash floods caused at least 13 deaths and 43 injuries in northwest China’s Gansu Province. Meanwhile, heavy rain has also hit Yulin City in northwest China’s Shaanxi Province, causing widespread damage to both urban and rural areas. China has intensified its efforts in natural disaster prevention in the ongoing flood season, as rainstorms have hit many regions across the country and triggered landslides and flooding since the beginning of July.

This is actual video footage of a catastrophic flood in Japan scene July 2018. The rain may have stopped in Japan, but the country is facing a long recovery process after floods and landslides killed at least 122 people in the southwest, officials said Tuesday. At least 27 floods and landslides killed, said the nation’s Fire and Disaster Management Agency. With emergency rain warnings lifted, the country is turning its focus to search and rescue efforts. Police, fire departments, and the military are scouring affected areas for those unaccounted for. Thousands of houses have been damaged, and even the ones that stand intact have been impacted. Nearly 17,000 households are still without power, and phone lines are down across multiple prefectures. Further complicating repair efforts is the fact that many railroads and highways are closed, too flooded to operate, placing many affected areas out of reach. Rains began late last week and intensified over the weekend. Rivers overflowed, landslides crushed buildings, and cars were swept away by floodwater. The record rainfalls in various parts of the country have caused rivers to burst their banks, and triggered large-scale floods and landslides in several areas,” Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Sunday. Two million people were forced to flee their homes, advised or ordered by the government to evacuate. Some, unable to leave, took shelter on their rooftops as flash floods swallowed entire streets. In Kurashiki near Okayama, soldiers were deployed to carry elderly residents from their homes into waiting boats. Suga warned that although the rain warnings had been lifted, residents should still watch for landslides. Those participating in cleanup efforts should be careful to avoid heat-related issues because the next few days are expected to be hot and clear. Prime Minister Abe announced on Monday that he has canceled a planned trip to Belgium, France, Saudi Arabia and Egypt to concentrate on the disaster relief effort. About 73,000 personnel have been mobilized for search-and-rescue efforts.

Conservation in a Changing World: David Ackerly

Published on Jul 26, 2018

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) In this century, the climate is changing faster than ever. Ecologist David Ackerly has been studying how fast plants and animals may need to migrate uphill or northward as the planet warms in order to remain in their preferred temperature regime. These velocities could be as high as five miles per year — exceeding the ability of most species to disperse and establish new populations.

Judy Woodruff:

And, as we heard, Michael Cohen’s recordings contradict what the Trump campaign said they knew about model Karen McDougal at the time.

It is one of a number of false statements that, over time, have come from President Trump or a member of his team.

At the “NewsHour,” we do not report on all of them. But, tonight, we want to take a moment to step back and look broadly at President Trump’s record on truth-telling and what it means for our democracy.

As Heat Wave Sweeps the Globe, New Study Warns of Deadly Link Between Rising Temps and Suicide

https://democracynow.org – As deadly fires and heat waves kill scores across the globe, a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change reports that when there are abnormally hot temperatures, there also tend to be higher suicide rates. The study warns up to 26,000 more people could die by suicide in the United States by 2050 if humans don’t reduce emissions of greenhouse gas pollution. We speak to Dr. Sanjay Basu, co-author of the new study and assistant professor of medicine at Stanford University.
