    FIFY.

    One assumes "foreign regime" satellites, are unaffected.

    "National/International Security" I suspect. For it's own and the many foreign citizens located down stream.

    Thoughtful people these Chinese.

    I couldn't give a fuck what you assume about the shit your write yourself, even when modifying my posts.

    What you write is all bollocks anyway.

    Meanwhile, I think you should address the chinky coverup and not waffle.

    China's Three Gorges Dam ushers in largest flood peak

    Photo taken on Aug 20, 2020 shows water gushing out from the Three Gorges Dam in Central China's Hubei province. The inflow of water at the Three Gorges reservoir reached 75,000 cubic meters per second on Thursday morning

    "An estimated 76,000 cubic meters per second of flood water is expected to flow into the reservoir and will increase its flood discharge to about 48,000 cubic meters of water per second, up from 44,000 cubic meters, the ministry said, adding it will schedule and make the best of all the reservoirs along the river, including the Three Gorges Reservoir, to reduce the impact.

    "A reservoir is like a water faucet that helps block the flood," said Chu Minghua, an official from the flood and drought disaster prevention department of the ministry, as quoted by People's Daily.
    He said from Sunday to Wednesday, reservoirs in the upper reach of the river held about 5.7 billion cubic meters of flood waters, of which the Three Gorges reservoir held 28 percent.

    "Mountain floods will be more likely to occur in the upper reaches of the river, where more rain is expected. After rounds of rain, soil has been loaded with water and likely to fall, leading to landslides," he said. "However, in the middle and lower reaches, rain will subside and heat will come instead. That will relive flood prevention pressure in the region."

    Whether it is too little, too late for Tonle Sap remains to be seen.

    Latest flood on China's Yangtze River passes Three Gorges Dam

    Xinhua | Updated: 2020-08-22 22:21

    "WUHAN - Yangtze River's fifth flood of this year has smoothly passed the Three Gorges Dam after pushing the reservoir's water level to a record high.

    The water level at the Three Gorges reservoir started to recede after reaching 167.65 meters at 8 am Saturday, the highest since the reservoir was built in 2003, according to the Changjiang Water Resources Commission.

    The reservoir saw an inflow of 75,000 cubic meters per second at the peak of the flood and a maximum outflow at 49,400 cubic meters per second, with some of the floodwater contained in the reservoir.

    Yangtze River, China's longest, on Aug 17 recorded the fifth flood of the year in its upper reaches after a spell of heavy rainfall, three days after the fourth flood was recorded on Aug. 14.


    The fifth flood of Yangtze, along with a flood of Jialing River, resulted in severe flooding of Chongqing in Southwest China. This made the city activate a top-level response to the floods on Tuesday, the highest rung in the country's four-tier emergency response system.


    The floods caused an emergency evacuation of 251,000 people and inundated 23,700 shops, but did not lead to deaths, according to the municipality's emergency management bureau."
