Catastrophic Floods Predicted in South China, Ministry of Water Resources Upgrades Emergency Response

China News Service, Beijing, April 21 – The Ministry of Water Resources of China has issued a warning that heavy rainfall will continue in South China, leading to catastrophic floods in Beijiang, the Pearl River Basin. As a result, the Ministry has upgraded the flood and drought disaster prevention emergency response to level III.

Recent heavy rainfall in parts of South China, southern Jiangnan, and eastern southwest has caused significant flooding. The Lanshetang Reservoir in Qingyuan, Guangdong, recorded a maximum cumulative point rainfall of 813 mm. Fifty-three rivers, including major streams and tributaries in Guangdong, Guangxi, and Jiangxi, have experienced over-alarm floods, with the maximum over-alarm range reaching up to 7.44 meters. Beijiang is currently facing its second major flood of 2024.

In response to the escalating flood situation, the Ministry of Water Resources conducted a flood prevention consultation on the morning of April 21. Video conferences were held with the Pearl River Water Conservancy Commission and the Guangdong Provincial Department of Water Resources to assess the current situation and coordinate flood prevention efforts.

At 10:00 on April 21, the Ministry raised the flood prevention emergency response to level III in Guangdong Province, while maintaining level IV in Fujian, Jiangxi, Hunan, and Guangxi. Eight provinces have issued “one province, one order” directives to provide accurate early warnings and prepare for heavy rainfall. Additional working groups have been deployed to assist in flood response efforts on the front lines of flood control.
