Answer by Justin
I want to go somewhere dramatic like I was in a movie or something. That’s like: the desert, a really good beach resort, northern Alaska where it’s daylight for half the year and night the other half, the Amazon jungle, an ice cave, someplace where the sky is a different color for a long time, someplace new, really. Though I might never be in any movies it’s not stopping me from doing something cool.

Q&A: What was life on the Yangtze River like before the Three Gorges Dam was built?

Question by Hawk_Nelson_Rox: What was life on the Yangtze River like before the Three Gorges Dam was built?
I had already tried googling it and I couldn’t come up with anything. Only how life after it was built. Thanks. And try to give your source or give me a website that I can go and visit myself.

Best answer:

Answer by James™
Before the dam was built, there many floods that drowned a nearby city with population of several million. In 1954, a flood killed 30,000 people and left one million homeless. But the dam prevents this sort of thing from reoccurring.

A long time before the Three Gorges Dam, the Yangtze River was used for transportation, a lot more than it does now. The large cargo ships would have raised the water level and caused even more floods. The dam has reduced the amount of transportation up/down the river helping considerably to reduce the flooding of the riverside towns and cities.

Hope this helps 🙂
