New Beijing News reporters learned from the Ministry of Water Resources that heavy rainfall is expected to occur in eastern Jianghuai, Eastern Huanghuai, Eastern North China and southern Northeast China from today (August 11) to 15 due to the combined influence of Lichma and cold air in the north. Many rivers in Shandong, Hebei, Liaoning and Jilin provinces will have obvious flood processes.

Large floods may occur in some small and medium-sized rivers in the region.

Relevant heads of the Ministry of Water Resources said that since 9 days, under the joint influence of typhoon Lichma and cold air, heavy rains have fallen to heavy rains in Zhejiang, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Anhui, Shandong, Hebei and Liaoning. Local heavy rains, covering areas greater than 100 mm and 50 mm, are 197,000 square kilometers and 396,000 square kilometers respectively, the largest.

Affected by heavy rainfall, there are 73 rivers in Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Anhui and Shandong provinces whose water level (discharge) exceeds the warning water level (discharge). Among them, 38 rivers have exceeded the guaranteed water level (discharge). Three rivers in Shandong Province, Mihe River, Shahe River and Wusong River in Shanghai have experienced super-historical floods.

In addition, the safety of reservoirs should be put in the first place, 24-hour inspection and monitoring of reservoirs should be strengthened, the regulation of flood limit water level of reservoirs should be strictly enforced, the operation of reservoirs exceeding flood limit water level in violation of regulations due to water-cherishing and water-expecting should be strictly prohibited, and the drainage reservoirs should be pre-empted in time, so as to give full play to the role of reservoirs in flood control, peak cutting and peak
