Muddy water filled the streets of Changsha, the capital of China’s south-central Hunan province, during the first weekend of July as torrential rains and flooding hit the city and surrounding region. This footage shows the flooded intersection between Huangxing Avenue and Panpan Road in Changsha. According to Xinhua, intermittent rain is expected to last in the city until Wednesday. Flooding also hit other provinces including Guizhou, Jiangxi, Guangxi, Hubei and Anhui, as water at the middle and lower stretches of the Yangtze River, the longest river in Asia, exceeded warning levels. At least 13 people have been killed in Hunan province, Hong Kong’s Sing Tao Daily reported. Credit: Weibo/zuozhuo123 (左卓Eric) via Storyful
