South China provinces raise alerts over historic flooding

Beijing: On June 21, it was reported that two provinces in south China upgraded flood warnings as rivers overflowed their banks and waters reached record levels. Guangdong province’s Shaoguan city, where average rainfall since late May has broken records, raised its flood alert to the highest, Level 1. Authorities asked residents of communities along river banks and in low-lying neighborhoods to move to higher ground after floodwaters hit a 50-year high, state television reported.
