Violent rainstorms have swept South China's Guangdong Province, affecting thousands of locals and forcing hundreds to evacuate.
The rainstorm triggered flash floods in Guangdong's eastern Heping County, affecting more than 50,000 residents.
Gushing water destroyed half of a 200-meter-long dike in the county, sparking panic among 6-thousand local residents. More than a thousand students were trapped by the deluge when floods hit their school.
Rescue crews were immediately mobilized to help residents caught in the wild weather and evacuated more than 600 people to safety.
This two-storey brick house collapsed under the rainfall in Meizhou, burying a resident. The victim was pulled from the rubble, but died later despite receiving medical treatment.
The sudden downpour caused some trains to be late and suspended rail services to and from Huizhou.
One train due to depart Shenzhen was canceled, while two other trains scheduled to arrive were late, leaving hundreds of passengers stranded at the train station.
