The 1887 Yellow River flood was a devastating flood on the Yellow River (Huang He) in China.

The flood, which began in September 1887, killed at least 900,000 people. The highest estimated death toll is 2,000,000. It was one of the deadliest natural disasters ever recorded. This flood is ranked one of the top most dangerous natural disasters ever.
