"The water is rising, and my house is in danger of being submerged. I was relieved when I saw a rescue boat coming," said Zhou Changsong, who was evacuated on Saturday afternoon from Chenxi county, Hunan.

In the neighboring Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, flooding disrupted railway services, with 45 trains canceled, forced to return or detoured.
