China's central government allocated another 95 million yuan (US$12.5 million) on Thursday to fund disaster relief work in flood-hit Anhui, Henan, Hubei, Sichuan, and Shanxi provinces, a spokesman from the Ministry of Civil Affairs said.

The government set aside 232 million yuan on Wednesday for these areas.

The people in flood-stricken areas have been properly relocated, according to the spokesman.

The central government also sent several working teams to flood-stricken areas to guide disaster relief work. One of the working teams, headed by civil affairs minister Li Xueju, arrived in Anhui on Wednesday.

Torrential rain began lashing the Huaihe River valley, the eastern area of Sichuan Province, and the southern area of Shaanxi Province on June 28.

More than 66.3 million Chinese have been affected by floods this summer, with 403 people killed and direct economic losses of 24.3 billion yuan, according to latest figures from the State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters.
