BEIJING — Chinese authorities have taken stringent measures for flood control along the Yellow River, the country's second-longest, as the floods will likely last until mid-October, the Ministry of Water Resources said on Sept 30.

The water flow along the Weihe River and Tongguan has reached 7,480 cubic meters per second, said the ministry. It added that social activities in the lower reaches of the Yellow River would be affected when water levels at the Huayuankou hydrology station rise to 5,000 cubic meters per second.

Efforts should ensure the water flow at the Huayuankou hydrology station stays under the warning level of 4,900 cubic meters per second, the ministry said.

Facing the floods rarely seen in history, the ministry dispatched four working groups to the flood-hit regions to guide flood control and called for enhanced preparations against flooding to safeguard people's lives and property.
