The Bailong River (simplified Chinese: 白龙江; traditional Chinese: 白龍江; pinyin: Báilóng Jiāng; literally "White Dragon River") is a river in the East China Sea basin of China. In August 2010, due to heavy rains and landslides the river overflowed its banks in Zhugqu County, Gansu, causing extensive damage and killing over a thousand people.[1][2]
