Continuous heavy rain has been pounding East China's Anhui province, killing two and affecting two million people. More than one million hectares of crops have been destroyed.
Around the province, seven cities and 29 counties are affected. Eight rivers have overflowed and the levels of more than 700 reservoirs are above the danger mark. Relocation and rescue is underway.
The downpour is the heaviest in a decade.
Most counties have seen rainfall exceeding 200 millimeters. Three thousand soldiers have been mobilized to help the relief efforts in most affected places, Tongcheng, Dongzhi and Huaining, and more are on standby.
In Tongcheng, more than 80,000 people have been relocated to safer areas but 3,000 are still trapped.
An expressway in Huangshan city has been cut, stranding one hundred workers. A line was set up to transfer food and drinks to them.
Continuous heavy rains pose a significant threat to the reservoir banks as the growing water pressure makes them vulnerable.
In Ma'anshan city, the water level of the Yangtze is continuing to rise, causing a bank to burst. The local water resource department rushed to repair it and arranged for workers to keep a close watch for further breaches.
Nearly 50 households have been evacuated and food and blankets provided.
Heavy rain is expected to continue until Wednesday, threatening more disruption and danger.
