THE WEATHER phenomenon La Nina may bring more big floods to northern China this year, the country's weather officials said yesterday.

La Nina, the cooler cousin to El Nino, was expected to cause up to 29 typhoons this year in the Pacific, with seven or nine landing in China and swamping the north coast, rather than the south-east. La Nina could also move the rain belt northward, causing big floods in the upper reaches of the Yangtze.
