Heavy Flooding in China’s Henan Province: Twenty-five people dead, thousands displaced

BEIJING: The Meteorological bureaus for Henan and the provincial capital city Zhengzhou have raised the emergency response to Level 1, the highest level as the flooding killed at least twenty-five people and displaced hundreds of thousands.

 

Heavy flooding in Henan province in central China has killed at least twenty-five people and displaced hundreds of thousands following torrential rain since last Saturday.

 

The Meteorological bureaus for Henan and the provincial capital city Zhengzhou have raised the emergency response to Level 1, the highest level.

 

Chinese president Xi Jinping on Wednesday (July 21) called for an all-out effort to help those affected, urging the authorities to prioritise residents safety and property.

 

One of those rescued, with the handle of Qijiqiyuan on Weibo, wrote a post: "The water kept rising... At first, the level was at our knees, then our waist... I started panicking when the water rose to my chest.” She added: "I heard a woman giving her family members her bank information in case she could not make it. I called my mum and told her I might not make it."

 

Flooding also hit other parts of Henan, with landmarks such as the Shaolin temple and Longmen grottoes, a Unesco World Heritage site, shutting temporarily.
