Storyline


The central Chinese city of Zhengzhou is making all-out efforts in rescue and relief, as torrential rains continue to wreak havoc, causing severe waterlogging, traffic disruptions, and power outages.

Extremely heavy rains hit Henan on Tuesday, with the precipitation in Zhengzhou, the provincial capital, exceeding the highest level on local weather records, according to the Ministry of Emergency Management.

A total of 12 people have been killed in the torrential rains in the downtown area of Zhengzhou, according to local authorities. About 100,000 people have been relocated to safe places.

After a night of rain, Zhengzhou is still troubled by severe waterlogging on Wednesday, with paralyzed road traffic. Over 80 bus lines have been suspended, more than 100 temporarily detoured, and the subway service has also been temporarily suspended.

Police officers, firefighters, and workers from local subdistricts are running against time to carry out rescue operation.

The Electric Power of Henan under the State Grid Corporation of China has launched the first-level flood control emergency response to ensure the power supply in Zhengzhou.

The Electric Power of Henan has organized 6,874 power protection personnel, 615 vehicles, 80 vehicle-mounted electricity generators and 184 generating units to carry out emergency repairs across Henan, ensuring normal power supply for citizens.

As of 04:00 Wednesday, four major vehicle-mounted generators and two major generating units had been put in place in Zhengzhou to aid emergency flood fighting efforts.

The Electric Power of Henan said it will continue to mobilize emergency power supply equipment, rescue vehicles and supplies to support Zhengzhou in flood control and rescue.

The Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport has also taken effective measures to mitigate the impact of the heavy rains. It ceased to handle inbound flights before 12:00 on Wednesday. At 08:00 in the morning, the outbound flights from the airport were proceeding in an orderly manner and the T2 terminal building was in normal operation.

Affected by heavy rains, about 1,100 passengers have been stranded at the airport. In order to ensure their travels, the airport is stepping up efforts to coordinate flight operation and passenger accommodation. The airport has provided necessary supplies such as sleeping bags, blankets and multifunctional charging equipment to temporary rest points. At the same time, priority will be given to the follow-up placement of the elderly and children.

More than 160 trains stopped services at Zhengzhoudong Railway Station, stranding a large number of passengers.

Heavy rains in Henan are expected to last until Wednesday night, according to forecasts.
