The maximum rainfall in three hours reached more than 190 millimeters, a 100 year record. And a total of more than 15-thousand residents have been affected.
The downpour also triggered a landslide, which killed two people, injured one and left one person missing.
Twenty-eight roads were cut, houses of more than 150 households were toppled, and more than 1-thousand hectares of crops were ruined.
He Guoqing, vice director of Anhui Flood Control & Drought Relief HQ, said, " More than 100 soldiers and armed police are helping with the evacuation. And now rainfall is not as strong as before."
But heavy rainfalls are still expected to linger in southern parts of China, and regions around the Yellow River will also see storms.
