The section of a dam along the Weihe River in Hebi city, Henan province, that was breached after recent heavy downpours was closed early on Monday.

The dam was breached at 10 pm on Thursday after heavy rain caused the river to swell, according to the Ministry of Water Resources. After intensive efforts, the 40-meter-long breach was fixed at around 2:27 am on Monday, according to China Aneng Group, a construction engineering company that has been on site to stop the swollen river from causing further damage.

Sixteen nearby villages have been flooded by the river, and villagers have been evacuated to safe areas.
