Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “China’s Henan Province Braces for More Rain as Flood Death Toll Rises” – below is their description.
China’s Henan province is bracing for more heavy rain after severe flooding that sparked large-scale evacuations left at least 33 dead, while minor disruptions to manufacturing and commodity production continued.
The death toll includes at least 12 people who were killed after water flooded subway cars in the capital Zhengzhou. Eight remain missing, according to government figures. Heavy rain is expected to continue to fall in parts of Henan as well as neighboring Hebei province, which surrounds Beijing, through Thursday, according to the China Meteorological Administration.
Rainfall in the central Chinese province intensified since Tuesday, with Zhengzhou, a city of 10 million, receiving a year’s worth of rain in just three days. Across Henan, 3 million people have been affected and as many as 380,000 evacuated as of early Thursday.
The flooding in Henan, a hub for agricultural and food production, coal and metals as well as heavy industry, is being closely watched for any serious economic disruptions, though the damage appears to be contained so far. Nissan Motor Co Ltd, which operates a plant in a joint venture with Dongfeng Motor Group Co Ltd, suspended operations at the factory for a second day, according to a spokesperson. SAIC Motor Corp., China’s biggest automaker, said its plant in Zhengzhou hasn’t been damaged.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
