The water flow in the upper stream of the Yellow River has been increasing due to rainfall. The Lanzhou hydrological station saw the second flood of the river this year with the water flow of 3,000 cubic meters per second, which occured at 8:42 pm on July 19. Authorities raised the emergency response for flood control to Level IV, as the water flow of the river surged to 3,320 cubic meters per second at 8 am on July 21 and the floodwater rose above alert level. Since strong rain will continue to lash parts of northwestern China from July 21 to July 23, reservoirs in the upper stream of the Yellow River have raised their discharge volume to battle the flood.
