The heaviest rainfall flooding in 60 years:



The city of Zhengzhou in Central China's Henan Province has recorded the heaviest rainfall in 60 years in what has been claimed to be a once in a lifetime event. Meteorologists mentioned that the typhoon near South China and the topography of the region could be the major reasons of the unusual torrential rainfall.



The maximum precipitation recorded in Zhengzhou in the last days reached 201.9 millimeters per hour, breaking the previous record of 198.5 millimeters in 1975, according to the National Meteorological Observatory. 


At least 12 dead and about 200,000 people relocated. All the subway stations in the city have been shut down.
