WUHU, July 17 (Xinhua) -- A total of 120 armed police officers have been dispatched to help reinforce the Sanlongwei section of a levee in Baimao Town of Wuhu, east China's Anhui Province as continuous rain has loosened the levee.

The downpours, which started on July 2, have affected 10 cities and 54 county-level administrations in the province, leading to the evacuation of 543,000 people and a direct economic loss of 10.69 billion yuan (about 1.53 billion U.S. dollars) as of 11 a.m. on Wednesday, the provincial disaster reduction and relief committee office said.

The rain has also affected 265,300 hectares of crops.
