Guangxi has recently worked out a reconstruction plan for its flood-stricken areas. Under the plan, flood-affected families will get an average of 2,000-2,500 yuan (242-303 US dollars) to help them resume normal life. The regional government and local governments will help every flood-affected family whose houses devastated by the floods build at least one house of 30 square meters or larger.
Severe floods ravaged Guangxi from June 18 to 27, claiming 54 lives and damaging 45,000 houses and nearly 410,000 hectares of farmland. Approximately 8 million people were affected and direct economic loss of more than seven billion yuan (843 million US dollars) was incurred.
