As the Yellow River’s second largest flood peak moves downstream, and more flood-control efforts are being taken in the Three Gorges Dam in Yichang, Hubei Province.

Flood water levels at Wubao, and Longmen in the middle sections of the Yellow River have exceeded the alert level. Beginning last Friday, the Xiaolangdi Dam in central China’s Henan Province started to discharge water, as the flood season started downstream.

Meanwhile weather forecasts say the upper reaches of the Yangtze River are expected to see more rainfall in the coming days. Its middle reaches, as well as Dongting Lake, are also facing increased flood control pressures.
