AKIPRESS.COM - China has allocated 250 million yuan (about $36.6 million) to help with flood relief work in Sichuan Province and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, XInhua reported.

Of the total, 200 million yuan was allocated for southwest China's Sichuan, which already received 100 million yuan in aid last month, according to the Ministry of Emergency Management (MEM).

The other 50 million yuan went to Inner Mongolia in north China, the ministry said.

The money, allocated by the MEM and the Ministry of Finance, will be used to relocate people affected by the floods, reconstruct collapsed houses and provide financial aid for flood victims.

Authorities launched an emergency response in July following severe rainstorms and floods in the two regions, and several work teams were dispatched to help with local disaster relief.

As of July 27, about 761,000 people in Inner Mongolia were affected by floods, which left 12 people dead and two missing and caused direct economic losses amounting to 5.3 billion yuan in the region, according to local authorities.

By July 12, 932,000 people in Sichuan were affected by floods, with direct economic losses estimated at 2.4 billion yuan.
