NANNING -- Rain-triggered floods have swollen rivers and left more than 80,000 people affected in South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.

Twenty rivers in the region have seen floods surpass warning levels, according to the regional hydrology and water resources bureau.

Rainstorms have battered 25 counties in Guangxi since Monday. As of 5 pm Wednesday, two people were killed and 83,600 people were affected as a result of floods. A total of 1,832 local residents were relocated, the regional civil affairs department said.
