Floods have stopped traffic in 169 sections of roads and suspended services of 113 bus routes.

Twelve trains have been canceled and 38 delayed since water disrupted traffic around the city's train station.

A Xinhua reporter saw water gush out of manhole covers and a section of road in Wuchang District was inundated in two minutes, forcing cars to stay in the water. He saw no public bus or taxi and failed to hail a car from app on his way to the office in the morning.
