Record amounts of heavy rainfall in Zhengzhou, the capital city of Henan Province, has overloaded several dams and led local governments to issue flood warnings for several rivers in the city. The flooding has killed 12 people and forced over 100,000 people to flee the area.

The intense rain started on Saturday and lasted through Wednesday night. Approximately 20.2 centimeters of rainfall blasted Zhengzhou in just a single hour on Tuesday afternoon, setting a new national record for hourly rainfall in inland areas. Between 6pm on Saturday and midnight on Wednesday, five weather stations recorded 61.7 cm of rain – nearly the area’s entire annual average.

On Tuesday, floodwater surged into a section of the city’s subway line, trapping commuters in waist-high water. 12 people died in the subway flooding and all subway services have been completely disrupted.

Zhenghou’s flood control headwaters issued a warning that the water storage at the Guojiazui Reservoir was at major risk of dam failure. The water levels of several other dams in the city are also at risk. People in these high-risk areas have been warned and evacuated.

The People’s Liberation Army has sent over 3,000 troops and 80 sets of equipment to help fight the floods and lead rescue efforts in the city.

flood3
Other areas in the province were also hit by record-setting downpours. As of 3am on Wednesday, the entire province’s emergency flood response level has been raised to Level 1, the highest. A further 32 dams in the province have also exceeded the flood warning levels. Local authorities have reported that the rainfall had caused a 20-meter breach in the Yihetan Dam and that it could fall apart at any time.

flood4
Three major landslides in the Yellow River basin around the city of Gongyi have blocked roads and railways and damaged major highways. Communication, power, and water supplies have been disrupted for over 24 hours.

If you have any friends in Henan at the moment, remember to send them this Rainstorm Hazard Guide and emergency rescue contact list:

If you can’t evacuate, please seek high ground immediately.

More than 18 million Shanghai residents, or 81.9 percent of the city’s adults, have completed vaccination against COVID-19, local authorities said Thursday.

As of Wednesday, Shanghai had administered 36.89 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to about 19.96 million residents, or 90.3 percent of the city’s adult population, the city government said at a press conference, adding that an immunity defense is forming in the eastern metropolis.

Shanghai began a large-scale inoculation drive on March 1. The widely used inactivated vaccines require two shots to complete.

Over 1.4 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in China as of Tuesday, as the country continues to ramp up its inoculation drive, the National Health Commission said Wednesday.
