BEIJING (Reuters) - Flooding in northeastern China has washed more than 1,000 barrels containing explosive chemicals into a major river, state media said on Wednesday.

The incident happened along the flood-swollen Songhua River in Jilin city in Jilin province in the late morning, the official Xinhua news agency said.

Residents contacted by telephone said water supplies had been cut off for a time in parts of the city, but were starting to return to normal.
