A man whose house was destroyed by Yangtze River floods cries along an embankment in Jiangxi Province's Jiangzhou township Thursday. Chinese authorities say more than 2,000 people have died, raising the previously estimated toll by 700. More than 90 percent of those killed between June and Aug. 3 were crushed in landslides and mud flows that buried houses and farms in several parts of the country. Millions of people have lost their homes. The floods were caused by rains that lifted the Yangtze River to its highest level since 1954, when flooding killed 30,000 people.
