  • Central China: 16 dead in flooded Zhengzhou metro, landslides

President Xi Jinping says situation “extremely severe” after city of Zhengzhou saw a year’s worth of rain in just three days.

At least 16 people were killed as torrential rain lashed China’s central province of Henan, causing landslides and flooding that partially submerged the underground rail system of Zhengzhou.

About 200,000 residents were evacuated as of Wednesday as soldiers led rescue efforts in Zhengzhou – a city of more than 10 million people – where days of rain have inundated the streets and subway, local government officials said.
