China Flood: Commuters Trapped In Subway Train (Pics, Video) by Holiness2100: 11:25am On Jul 21
STARING DEATH IN THE FACE: SHOCKING footage shows terrified passengers trapped inside an underground train as floodwaters rise to shoulder level in China.

Rescuers have recovered the bodies of three workers in a flooded tunnel under construction in a southern Chinese city, as search efforts for 11 others trapped since Tuesday continue.

With heavy downpours hitting central China in recent days, devastating flooding is wreaking havoc in many areas.

Rain continued to pound down in the province Henan on Tuesday, bursting the banks of major rivers, flooding the streets of several cities and trapping subway passengers in deep floodwaters.

Henan, which is double the size of Austria, has been hit by storms since the weekend in an unusually active rainy season.

In Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan on the banks of the Yellow River, more than 200mm of rain fell in one hour on Tuesday, forcing the city to stop all subway train services.

Dramatic video shared on social media showed commuters waist-deep in murky floodwaters on a subway train and an underground station turned into a large, churning pool.


An operation is reportedly underway to rescue passengers stranded in deep floodwater on underground trains.

TRANSPORT CHAOS

Henan is a major logistics hub but train services were suspended, while many highways were closed and flights delayed or cancelled.

In Ruzhou, a city southwest of Zhengzhou, streets have been turned into torrents, sweeping away cars and other vehicles, footage on social media showed.

A rising Yi River also threatened to hit the Longmen Grottoes, a UNESCO World Heritage site featuring millennium-old Buddhist statues etched into limestone cliffs near the city of Luoyang.

Like the Longmen Grottoes, the Shaolin Temple in Dengfeng city, famous in the West for its martial arts, has been temporarily shut.

More than 10,000 residents of Henan province were moved to shelters, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

Also in Dengfeng, an aluminium alloy plant exploded on Tuesday as water from a river surged into the factory.

At least 31 large and medium-sized reservoirs in the province have exceeded their warning levels.

From Saturday to Tuesday, 3,535 weather stations in Henan saw rainfall exceed 50mm, of which 1,614 registered levels above 100mm and 151 above 250mm.

The highest was in Lushan city, which saw 498mm of rain, according to the provincial weather bureau.

"This is the heaviest rain since I was born, with so many familiar places flooded," said an internet user in the inundated city of Gongyi on Chinese social media.

Meanwhile, three bodies have been recovered after a tunnel flooded in a southern Chinese city.

Crews have also been working to pump out water from the Shijingshan tunnel, which lies under a reservoir and was part of an expressway being built in the city of Zhuhai, in Guangdong province close to Hong Kong.

The rescue effort, also involving divers and robots, has been hampered by carbon monoxide fumes from machinery being used in the tunnel as part of the operation.

Pathetic!
Half of the World is Hit by Insane Floods,
The other Half is Ravaged by Insane Fire,
These are the Days of Noah and Lot.( Flood and Fire)
JESUS Christ said His Coming will be as in the days of Noah and Lot.

Humble yourself, because we all are Nothing,
Cry out to GOD For Mercy,
Surrender Completely and Genuinely to JESUS Christ. Live Ready
JESUS is Coming! Maranatha!

No problem

China is one of, if not the most contributor of Carbon emissions country in the world.
Next is Europe and USA.

They all deserve 99% of the effect of global warming.

They should enjoy what they've planted.

The truth is that wailers will always wail in life 24/7.
And the fortunate thing is that, there is nothing sane, honest and hardworking Nigerians can do about it.
Wailing, hatred and bitterness that will kill them all is already in them.

Global warming is here. The world was warned repeatedly, but no one listened. The strongest countries invested in weapons of war rather than in the environment. Now, the catastrophic results are on display for all to see.

It is well.
