Rain has continued to hit the upper reaches of the Yangtze, triggering water levels at many of its tributaries including the Jiangling, Minjiang, and Tuojiang rivers in southwest China have surpassed danger warnings.
In the Yangtze's middle reaches, water levels remain above the danger warning. The water level of central China's Dongting Lake has remained steady since Saturday. Meanwhile, water is flowing at a rate of 70-thousand cubic meters per second at the Three Gorges Dam.
The growing flood now threatens sections of the Yangtze that run through central China's Hubei Province, as well as the upper reaches of the Huaihe River in east China's Anhui Province.
