Parth of northeastern China, including Beijing, issued flood and geological hazard alerts on June 26, 2022, ahead of the heaviest rainstorm of the season expected to hit the region from June 26 to 28.

China’s National Meteorological Center (CNMC) predicted heavy rainfalls from 14:00 LT on June 26 to 14:00 LT on June 27 across 10 areas, including Beijing, North China’s Tianjin, Hebei and East China’s Shandong, Northeast China’s Liaoning, Northwest China’s Shaanxi, Central China’s Henan and Hubei, as well as Southwest China’s Sichuan and Chongqing.1

Apart from downpours of up to 150 mm (5.9 inches), these areas may also face strong winds, thunderstorms, and hail.

The State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters on Sunday initiated emergency response operations for flood control in these areas, urging early disaster prediction and timely public evacuation.

According to the provincial meteorological department, Liaoning is expected to see the heaviest rainstorms this year on June 27 and 28, which are likely to trigger disasters such as mountain torrents, landslides, and mudslides.

From 14:00 LT on June 27 to 14:00 LT on June 28, rainstorms are expected in parts of Liaoning, Jilin, Heilongjiang, Inner Mongolia, Henan, Shandong, Jiangsu, Anhui, Hubei, Hunan, Guizhou, Sichuan, Guangxi and Tibet.2

On June 28, eight cities in northeast China’s Liaoning Province activated level IV emergency response against heavy downpours, while the local railway authorities suspended the operation of 44 passenger trains.3

In Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning, primary and secondary schools, as well as kindergartens, were closed on Monday due to the forecast of heavy downpours.

Rainfall up to 200 mm (7.87 inches) is forecast to slash from south to north, with the maximum hourly precipitation intensity of 70 mm (2.75 inches).
