Several cities in China have suffered severe floods caused by torrential rainfall, with more heavy rain forecast in the next few days.

The Global Times on Monday reports that affected areas include Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality and Qingdao in East China's Shandong Province. 

Also, according to China's National Meteorological Center, heavy rain will last until 8 pm on Tuesday across 13 areas, including Southwest China's Chongqing, Sichuan and Guizhou provinces, North China's Inner Mongolia, Northeast China's Liaoning and Jilin, East China's Shandong, Jiangsu and Anhui, and Central China's Henan, Hubei and Hunan.

The downpour has affected more than 60,000 people in Sichuan, where more than 42,000 people have already been evacuated as of 7 am on Monday.

In response to the torrential rain, the State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters launched an emergency response on Sunday for some cities and ordered the implementation of measures against heavy rain.
