The number of people dying in floods reached 114 in China's Hebei province with 111 more missing, according to provincial authorities.

According to the China Daily newspaper, floods provoked landslides smashing nearly 53,000 houses and destroying over 700,000 hectares of crops.

Reportedly, some 310,000 people were evacuated from the flooded area.

The province's economy suffered losses worth over 15 billion yuan ($2.2 billion), the media outlet added.

Floods triggered by torrential rains started in June and are reportedly the worst since 1998.
