Storyline


As continuous torrential rainfalls are hitting south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, east China's Jiangxi Province and central China's Hunan Province, raising water levels of rivers in those areas, local authorities have issued corresponding alerts on heavy rain and flood and stepped up efforts in flood control and disaster relief.

According to the local meteorological station, Guangxi will be hit by torrential rain again from Friday. The Guangxi Meteorological Station issued a blue alert for heavy rain on 16:40 Thursday and launched the Level IV emergency response command for major meteorological disaster at 17:00 on Thursday.

Affected by heavy rainfall, the water level of the reservoirs in northern Guangxi rose sharply, and some areas are flooded. According to the hydrological department of Wuzhou City in Guangxi, the first flood in 2019 of Xijiang River passed Wuzhou at 02:00 on Friday.

According to the monitoring of the hydrological department in Wuzhou, the flood peak with a water level of 19.38 meters appeared in Xijiang River around 21:20 on Thursday, with flood discharge reaching 31,800 cubic meters per second. The flood peak continued until 02:00 on Friday and the water level gradually dropped.

When the flood peak arrived, the water levels at two water level monitoring stations in Tengxian Station and Longwei Station both exceeded the warning lines.

"Our hydrological department should pay close attention to the changes in water situations and release the real-time water situation to the public. Besides, it should also pay attention to the safety of slope and embankment to prevent landslide when water retreats," said Liang Jia'an, head of the Hydrological Bureau in Wuzhou City.

According to the latest monitoring by the hydrological department, as of 11:30 on Friday, the water level of the Xijiang River had dropped to 19.19 meters with flood flow reaching 31,300 cubic meters. At present, the water level is gradually falling and is expected to drop below the warning level of 18.5 meters around 23:00 on Friday.

A total of 59 counties and cities in east China's Jiangxi Province have suffered flooding flooding caused by continuous heavy rainfalls to various degrees. The National Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters and the Chinese Ministry of Emergency Management have sent four working groups to collect information of the disasters in the cities of Xinyu, Yichun, Fuzhou and Yingtan and to organize the flood control work before the next round of rainfall.

According to local meteorological authority, a new round of rain will hit east China's Jiangxi Province. Heavy rainfall will hit the cities of Nanchang, Yichun and Shangrao, with torrential rain hitting part of those places. Moderate rain will hit northern part of central Jiangxi, with heavy rain in some of the areas.

According to the hydrometeorological forecast, heavy to torrential rain will hit the Yangtze River basin within one week. Torrential rain will concentrate in the middle and lower reaches of the river's main stream, the Dongting Lake area in central China's Hunan Province and the Poyang Lake area in east China's Jiangxi Province, with cumulative precipitation reaching 80 to 180 millimeters.

According to weather forecast, the water levels of the main streams in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River will continue to rise. The water levels at Poyang Lake's Hukou Station and the Jiujiang Station of the Yangtze River will both exceed the warning levels on Friday. The first flood of the Yangtze River in 2019 is being formed in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River.
