Subway service between the Huangcun and Suyuan stations on Guangzhou's Line 21 were suspended for more than three hours on Friday, after the line's Shenzhoulu Station was flooded, a statement released by Guangzhou Metro said on Friday afternoon.

Both entrances to Shenzhoulu Station, located in the city's Huangpu district, were closed for cleaning up accumulated water as of about 4 pm, the statement said. 

The company sent special shuttle buses to help transport passengers affected by the suspension and urged other passengers to use alternative public transportation modes to avoid taking the subway in the flooded section.
