Informations

The Chinese famine of 1907 was a crisis in northern China. The famine was triggered by heavy rains over the 1906 growing season.Bill Kte'pi estimated that 10 percent of the population of northern Jiangsu and parts of central China may have died, and put the death toll as possibly being as high as 25 million people, which would make it is the second-worst famine in recorded history. The Argus, a contemporary Australian newspaper, likewise reported on 22 February 1907 that '[t]en millions of Chinese were suffering' and that half would die without food aid.On 26 June 1907, The Argus reported that the crisis was at an end.
