Beijing - Chinese state media say a river flood triggered by torrential rains has killed 76 people in a northeastern city.
The official Xinhua News Agency said a memorial service was held on Saturday in the city of Fushun for the victims. It says another 88 people remained missing as of Friday.
It quotes Fushun mayor Luan Qingwei as saying the flood was the worst in decades for the city, where a river cuts through the downtown.
A statement by Fushun's municipal government has declared Saturday as a citywide day of condolence and that all public entertainment activities should be halted for the day.
Fushun, located in a mountainous area, has been hit hard by floods ravaging China's northeastern provinces. Dozens more have been reportedly killed by floods elsewhere in the region.
