Zhejiang Issues Level IV Emergency Response for Flood Prevention

From June 21, Zhejiang ushered in the second round of heavy rainfall since the set-in of plum rains, which caused partial mountain torrents and geological disasters in the small watersheds in Kaihua, Suichang and other places. Zhejiang Provincial Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters (ZPFCDH) launched a Level IV emergency response on June 22 and made further preventive arrangements for flood control.
"The current heavy rainfall mainly appears in Quzhou, Jinhua, Lishui and other places,” an official from ZPFCDH said. Heavy rainfalls have caused water logging in some villages, swamped farmland, cut off roads, damaged water conservancy facilities, devastated civilian houses and trigged landslides in Kaihua, Suichang and some other places. No casualty has been reported so far. According to Zhejiang Provincial Hydrological Bureau, from 6 a.m. on June 21 to 6 p.m. on June 22, the surface rainfall reached 44 millimeters in Zhejiang, with 98 mm in Quzhou, 61 mm in Jinhua, and 52 mm in Lishui.
