More than a dozen persons died and 1 lakh stranded people evacuated after massive floods in central China following a huge rainfall. Around 14 cities in Henan province, including its provincial capital Zhengzhou, are affected.
Footage circulating online shows people wading in chest-high levels of water on roads and train stations. President Xi Jinping said on Wednesday the "flood prevention situation was very severe" and at a "critical stage".
