BEIJING, July 24. /TASS/. At least 18 people died and another nine are missing in Central China’s Anyang city, Henan Province, Xinhua reported on Sunday, referring to local authorities.

"The city government has allocated 360 million yuan ($54 million) for disaster relief," local authorities told the agency. "Relief supplies including bottled water, food, quilts and tents were airdropped to eight villages which have been cut off by road."
