China’s Three Gorges Dam faces severe flooding as Yangtze overflows

China’s Three Gorges Dam is facing record levels of flooding because the Yangtze River, which passes through the dam, has flooded several times this year already amid heavy rains.

The waterway’s lower reaches are still recovering from heavy flooding in July that affected a large part of southeastern China.
