BEIJING — China on Aug 2 issued warnings for flash floods in parts of the country.

East China's Fujian province and Northwest China's Qinghai province are highly likely to see flash floods from 8 pm on Aug 2 to 8 pm on Aug 3, according to a yellow alert issued jointly by the Ministry of Water Resources and the China Meteorological Administration.

The authorities also warned of possible flash floods caused by heavy rains in other parts of the country, issuing a blue alert for parts of Heilongjiang, Zhejiang, Guangdong, and Gansu.
