BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- China will provide 300,000 U.S. dollars in cash to flood-hit Madagascar, the Ministry of Commerce said on Friday.

Floods in Madagascar's capital Antananarivo and its surrounding area, caused by a mix of rainstorms and cyclones, have killed at least 24 people, affected more than 60,000 and forced more than 30,000 to flee their homes.

The money will be used to help Madagscar government in disaster relief after recent rainstorms and cyclones caused breaching of dykes and damages to highways, houses and cropland.
