In central China on the Yellow River was blown up the dam. The explosion was peaceful in order to remove the silt from the riverbed. Attempts to clear the Yellow River will last another 10 days. From such an emergency release of water produced a strong enough stream washing away the silt deposits on the 800-kilometer stretch of river.

     Yellow River got its English name “Yellow River” for the color of the water-rich mud that washed out of the loess soil of the territory on which it flows. The Chinese name is Huang translated as “mountain sons of Khan”, which points to the frequent flooding of the river, threatening the destruction and losses to people living along its banks. It is known that over the past 2,000 years the river over a thousand times out of its sides and at least 20 times changed the trajectory of his bed. No wonder people call it “the river thousands of grief. The most dangerous area in the whole Yellow River is the Great China Plain, where the river slows down its flow and spreads widely, and sometimes the level of the river is three meters above the surface of the plains. She is prone to periodic large floods. But, like many other large rivers, it gives new life to the fields, because the retreating after the spill water leaves a large part of fertile loess collected upstream. However, the Yellow River – certainly one of the muddy rivers in the world. Thus, it carries about 26 kg of silt per cubic yard of water, while river flooding – up to 544 kg. This shows that the rate of flow of the river is relatively high, without losing speed even when passing through the extensive irrigation system in the plains.
