Influenced by the heavy rainfall of Typhoon No. 9 Liqima, watershed floods occurred in Lingjiang River Basin, and the Shifeng Xisha Section Station and Ximen Station in Lingjiang exceeded the highest flood level in history. At 3 p.m. on August 10, because of the turbulent flow of Lingjiang River, the flood washed into the wall of Taizhou Prefecture, causing about 1.5 meters of water in the old city.
Beginning this morning, we have begun to transfer the people of the ancient city. Some areas with deep water have been unable to walk. It is estimated roughly that there are many people who need to be transferred through the stormboat in the ancient city at present, but the existing number of stormboats is insufficient, so we urgently requisitioned the stormboat to transfer the people to the society. u201d Zhou Zhongjiang, head of the propaganda section of Linhai Public Security Bureau, told Peng Mei News.
Beginning on the afternoon of October 10, the public security departments in Linhai issued information for help through various channels, hoping that all parties could provide stormboats for the people in Linhai. Civil rescue teams from all parts of the province also rushed to Linhai to participate in the rescue.
At 22:00 p.m. on August 10, Pengbao News learned from the flood control and drought control headquarters of Linhai Municipal Peoples Government that the tidal level of Lingjiang River has been slowly declining after observation by hydrological stations. At present, the flood has entered a flat tide period, and the water level is gradually declining.
