The National Meteorological Center said on Sunday that rainstorm is expected to hit parts of Guizhou, Guangxi, Guangdong, Hunan, Jiangxi, Fujian, Zhejiang and Tibet over the next few days, with precipitation up to 180 millimeters in some areas.

 
The center advised the public to keep alert to possible flooding, waterlogging and avoid visits to mountainous areas over the next few days.
 
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Water Resources said four work teams have been dispatched to four provincial-level regions in southern China to assist with local flood control efforts.
 
The ministry stressed that local governments should take targeted measures to prevent mountain torrents, ensure dam safety during floods and strengthen patrols on the levee system.
