Northeast China rivers reach historic levels amid persistent heavy rain

Persistent heavy downpours have caused 13 rivers to rise to record levels in parts of northeastern China, the Ministry of Water Resources reported Saturday, June 19, 2021. As of Tuesday, June 22, provincial authorities in Heilongjiang upgraded to a level two emergency response.

Several parts of northeastern China have been hit by incessant heavy rains since last week, prompting authorities to warn people of flooding as water levels in the region's rivers reach historic levels.

The ministry said 13 rivers, mostly in Heilongjiang, have hit above-normal water levels.

The affected rivers included the main stream and tributaries of the upper reaches of Heilongjiang, the Emur River, Pangu River, and Huma River, and the Dobukur River and Gan River, the upper tributaries of the Nenjiang River in Inner Mongolia.

Five rivers, including the Luogu River, a section of the upper reaches of Heilongjiang and its tributaries, Emur, Pangu, and Dobukur, a tributary of the Nenjiang River, have all surpassed highs last recorded decades ago.
