BEIJING — China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) on Aug 29 said it has allocated relief fund totaling 177 million yuan ($26 million) for the flood-hit Shandong province.

The fund was part of the central government’s budget investment for disaster relief and emergency subsidies, which will be used for restoring infrastructure and public facilities in the disaster-hit regions, according to the NDRC.

Shandong has suffered from severe floods after Typhoon Rumbia, the 18th this year, brought heavy rains to the coastal province. As of Aug 23, at least 3.8 million people were affected, with six dead and 15 missing, according to local authorities.
