Beijing, June 30 (SocialNews.XYZ) China's meteorological and water resources authorities on Sunday evening renewed a red alert -- their highest-level alert -- for mountain torrents as rainstorms continue to soak parts of the country.

From 8 p.m. Sunday to 8 p.m. Monday, mountain torrents are very likely to occur in parts of Hunan and Guizhou, according to the Ministry of Water Resources and the China Meteorological Administration, Xinhua news agency reported.


The two departments also issued an orange alert for mountain torrents in the northeast of Guangxi.

Localities have been advised to strengthen real-time monitoring and flood warning procedures, prepare for possible evacuation, and take precautionary measures to minimize risks.
