Editor's Note:
The transfer of stranded people in deep-watered areas along a main avenue in Zhengdong New District of the torrential rain-battered Zhengzhou, Central China’s Henan Province, continued until late on Wednesday night. Rescue workers still carried on transporting relief goods to people who stayed in hospitals and schools over the night.
Global Times reporters learned that the depth of the accumulated rainwater could reach 1.6 meters. Due to the complexity of the landforms, it took more than two hours to complete one route of the transportation at night.
