China’s biggest freshwater lake looks set for unprecedented flooding. Areas around the lake are already among the worst hit in recent weeks, and residents are fearing the worst.

China raised its flood response alert to the second highest level over the weekend. This, as heavy rain soaked regions along the Yangtze river.
