The ancient city of Fenghuang in Hunan province suffered from heavy rain and flood from June 2 to 3.
In Jufu Village, Aizhai Town, a flood swept away many homestays with pointed roofs and wooden structures. A person wearing raincoats stood by and watched helplessly.
The heavy rain caused the water level of the Tuojiang River in western Hunan to rise tremendously.
A resident said: “Every year on the eve of the Dragon Boat Festival, it rains heavily here in Phoenix, Hunan, and this year the rain is particularly heavy.”
The ancient city of Fenghuang in west Hunan has a history of more than 300 years. According to Xinhua News Agency, as of June 3, the torrential rain has caused 2 people to die, and 7 people to lose contact. 170 houses collapsed, and 10,100 hectares of crops were damaged.
