In 1931, the flooding of the Huang He (or Yellow) River of China killed around 1,000,000 to 3,700,000 people. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th most devastating floods also occurred at the Yellow River, with death tolls of 900,000-2,000,000, 500,000-900,000, and 300,000 respectively. Because of its high susceptibility to flooding, the river is often called “China’s sorrow.”
The worst flood in the United States was in Johnstown, Pennsylvania in 1889.
