Flash floods in southwest and northwest China have left at least a dozen dead and put thousands in harm’s way, state media reported. The rains come amid a heat wave in parts of the country, including eastern Zhejiang province and the city of Shanghai, with temperatur­es soaring as high as 42 degrees Celsius (107 Fahrenheit) last week. Experts say such extreme weather events are becoming more likely because of climate change.
