Sixteen people have been killed, while 66 others remain missing, after rain-triggered floods and landslides in southwest China's Sichuan Province over the past week.
According to Sichuan's metrological bureau, the province will experience more than 30 hours of additional heavy rainfall starting Friday night.
Ten cities, including Mei-shan, Ya-an, and the capital Cheng-du, are going to see extremely strong downpours. The harsh weather is predicted to last for five days.
Local authorities are required to spare no efforts in evacuating disaster-threatened residents. Torrential downpours have hit 67 counties since August 13th, affecting nearly six million people.
