WUHAN - An overnight storm following days of rain has stopped traffic, cut power and water supplies and trapped citizens in their homes in many parts of Wuhan, a metropolis on the Yangtze River.

The downpour caused severe waterlogging as rivers, lakes and reservoirs of the city have swollen, leading to closure of a tunnel across the Yangtze as well as some subway stations and underground passages, according to local traffic authorities.

From 8 p.m. of Tuesday to 8 a.m. of Wednesday, the precipitation of the city proper reached 180 millimeters and the district of Caidian received 206 millimeters of rain.
