(Yicai Global) June 21 -- Sustained torrential rainfall has caused severe floods in China’s southeastern Jiangxi province as rivers break their banks, forcing the provincial government to issue a red alert for the first time this year.

On June 20, the local meteorological agency gave eight warnings between 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. as heavy rains lashed the region. Many low-lying areas are completely submerged, and there has been huge damage to property and infrastructure.

Rescue workers and the military are already on the scene to save those trapped in their homes.
