Merbok will intensify the rainstorms that hit China's southern and eastern regions over the weekend.

Continuous torrential rain since Friday has left 120,000 people with damaged property in Guizhou, according to Xinhua News Agency. Heavy rain forced the evacuation of 1,079 people and caused direct economic losses estimated at 48.7 million yuan ($7.16 million).
