How did the people of China feel about the 1938 Yellow River Flood?

I'm guessing that it is a historical fact that the Nationalist forces created the infamous flooding in the North China plain in 1938.
What is the perception of the Chinese people about the resulting deaths? Do they tend to view it as a necessary act or a very grave blunder?

It is a tragic tragedy.

At that time, Japan was preparing to attack Wuhan. In order to prevent the Japanese mechanized troops from advancing, the government blasted the Yellow River and made the entire North China Plain a swamp. Although many civilians were killed, the tactics were effective.

There is nothing right or wrong, it can only prove the cruelty of war.
