Xianning positively copes with new round of heavy rain 18-07-03

  XIANNING - From 8:00 am Jun 30th to 8:00 July 1st, there was heavy to torrential rain in Xianning, and downpour in part area. It’s estimated that there will be moderate rain on July 2nd, and from July 3rd to 6th, there will be shower in part area on afternoon due to the southwestern air current in the periphery of the subtropical high.

  On Jun 29th, the municipal Party committee and the city government had already made the arrangement and deployment in terms of countermeasures for a new round of heavy rainfall in Xianning city, which requires scientific analysis and judgment, proactive prevention, effective countermeasures, in order to take precautions against the disasters and maintain safety.

  As the latest hydrological information shows, now the total situation in Xianning remains stable, and the water levels of rivers in Xianning are generally 5 to 6 meters lower than the warning water level; the Yumatou sluice is all closed, while the Jinkou sluice opens 1 hole, and the pumping house of the two are off, too; all the large and medium reservoirs’ water level in Xianning city is lower than the flood control level, while that of 6 small reservoirs exceeded the flood control level. Plus, the water levels of Lushui, Fushui, Ganhe River and other small rivers are averagely low.

  The Municipal Office of Flood Control and Drought Relief urges to enhance key precaution. Since now it is in the Meiyu period, every place is supposed to put the emphasis on preventing the small watershed mountain flood and other geological disasters caused by regional short-term heavy rain; pay close attention to the water and rain condition; strengthen the supervision and pre-warning as well as reinforcing the safety management of the projects under construction, water scenic spots, school buildings, agritainment, drifting dams, hydropower station, tailing ponds and mines. It is also required that water logging prevention be enhanced. The short-term heavy rain can easily give rise to water logging in the lowlands in cities and towns, hence, water pumps and drainage machines should be prepared, and the water drainage pipe network should be unclogged, so as to ensure the safety of cities and towns. In the meantime, scientific scheduling is of great necessity. It should store and preserve water rationally; those reservoirs and ponds with danger should be emptied during the flood season. Apart from that, the 24-hour watch system for flood control should be strictly implemented by the related departments at all levels, and the people in charge must stay in his/her position to enhance the water conservancy project inspection and the flood prevention supervision, who are supposed to report it to the upper level on finding disasters and dangers.

  At 7:00 am July 1st, the Municipal Meteorological Observatory issued the red rainstorm alert, there will be rainfall of over 100 mm in part of Tongcheng and Chongyang, with lightning and thunder, and a gust from level 6-8, which meant higher meteorological risk of mountain flood in mountainous areas, geological disasters and flood in medium and small rivers.
