China braces for more heavy rainfall

Heavy rain will continue to batter many parts of China over the next two days, after bad weather forced authorities to shut down tourist sites and ground nearly 360 flights on Saturday.

According to the local weather bureau, torrential rain will sweep parts of Guangxi Zhuang and Guizhou as well as Hunan and eastern province of Jiangxi on Sunday and Monday.

Authorities have renewed blue alert for rainstorms and thunderstorms in those regions, adding that the downpours will continue to hit parts of Guangxi and Hunan on Monday.
