1938 Yellow River flood
In June 1938, during the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Nationalist troops under Chiang Kai-Shek intentionally broke the levees of the Yellow River near Huayuankou to slow the advance of the Japanese army. Although several thousand Japanese troops were drowned, 12 million Chinese were affected, nearly 900,000 of them dying.
