Other parts of Henan were also hit by torrential rain and record rainfall has been reported in several areas. At 3 am on Wednesday, the province's emergency response level for floods has also been raised to level 1 from level 2.

What's more, the water levels of 32 dams have breached the flood warning level. In the city of Luoyang, local authorities said the rainfall had caused a 20-meter breach in the Yihetan Dam, and that the dam "could collapse at any time".
