The Yangtze River has seen its highest flood peak so far this year, with water flow into the Three Gorges Dam reservoir reaching 48,000 cubic meters per second on Sunday.

The Yangtze River Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters says water flow has increased rapidly since last Wednesday, due to continuous rainfall in the region.

 The Headquarters has ordered the reservoir’s water discharge to be raised to 35,000 cubic meters per second.

 Navigation restrictions have also been enforced in nearby waterways. 


The water flow into the reservoir is expected to drop to 42,000 cubic meters per second on Monday. But weather forecasts say heavy rain will hit the region upstream again in the next three days. Provinces including Sichuan, Guansu, Shaanxi, Hubei and Anhui will see rainstorms.
