The worst flooding in nearly half a century hit South China's Hainan Province since the heavy rainfall started from Sept 30.

The flooding in Hainan killed one, left three missing, and affected 1.65 million people in 16 cities and counties as of Oct.7, according to the latest statistics from Hainan's flood control office.

The situation may worsen after the China Meteorological Administration, the national weather forecaster, announced further rainstorms are expected to batter the provinces of Hainan, Yunnan and Guangdong over the next three days.
