East China’s Jiangxi Province upgraded its emergency response for flood control from level 3 to level 2 on Friday, according to the flood control and drought relief headquarters of the province. Continuous rains have increased the water level of Yangtze River in Poyang County to three meters above the warning level, and exceeded the highest record in 1998. Heavy rainfall has caused severe waterlogging in the area, trapping many residents. In a video, a firefighter carried an old man on his shoulder as floods hit the county.
