China – Heavy rain has wreaked havoc in Nanping city in eastern China’s Fujian province, causing massive floods, turning roads to small rivers and trapping many locals in their homes. After two hours of torrential rain on Saturday, parts of Nanping were overwhelmed by significant flooding. Video footage filmed by locals showed high, muddy water pushing down the streets, washing away vehicles and demolishing small sheds. The fast-moving floodwaters prompted a rescue operation, with some 3,000 people evacuated to safety. No casualties were reported.
