More than 50,000 people have been evacuated after a swollen river flooded a city in northeastern China on Saturday, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

Earlier reports said 10,000 people had been evacuated.

Torrential rains caused flooding along the Yalu River that marks the border between China and North Korea.

Floodwaters cut off transport and communication links in Dandong City, destroyed over 200 houses and left at least three people missing, local officials said.

Heavy rains will continue in northeastern China through Sunday, meteorologists said.
