Multiple dams on Huai River continued releasing floodwaters on Tuesday (July 21) as east China still faced huge pressure of surging waters.
After 24 hours since the Wangjiaba station opened its sluice gates to discharge water on Monday (July 20), the water level at the hydrological station only declined by 0.22 meters (0.72 ft.), state broadcaster CCTV reported, lower than experts’ expectations as floodwater continued to rise on the upper stream of the Huai River.
At Yingshang county in eastern Anhui province, sluices were opened at three dams to divert floodwater to nearby buffer areas, home to nearly 160,000 people in eight villages, according to local media reports.
In central Hubei province, a landslide has blocked the Qingjiang River, a tributary of the Yangtze River, forming a dammed lake which poses a threat to nearby villages and the downstream city of Enshi, said CCTV.
Torrential rains have battered large swathes of China for weeks, raising water levels in local rivers and lakes. (Reuters)
