Yu the Great Drained Flooding by Yellow River Near Mount Jishi or Amne Machin Earthquake Caused Flow Blockage


Most people think that Yu the Great of the Xia dynasty of China solved the flooding of the Yellow River problem in its lower reaches, but he worked his engineering magic a thousand miles to the west from Beijing (which is near the mouth of the Yellow), that flooding where today is the Qinghai province of China at the northeastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau, where during the Ice Age, in the aftermath of Noah’s Flood, much tectonic activity seems to have caused blockage of the Yellow River where it bends sharply to the north at Mount Amne Machin, breached by Yu for the continued flow of the Yellow River.
