Beijing has experienced the heaviest rainfall in 140 years. At least 20 people have lost their lives due to the heavy rains that Beijing, the capital of China, experienced over the past 140 years.

Based on the information provided by the Beijing Meteorological Bureau, the Chinese government reports that the city experienced 744.8 millimeters (29.3 inches) of rainfall between Saturday and Wednesday. This amount marks the most significant rainfall recorded in the town since 1891.

Heavy storms have been raging over China due to Typhoon Doksuri, which has already caused damage in southern Chinese provinces and is now moving northward.

According to a report by the NASA Earth Observatory, Typhoon Doksuri made landfall in the Chinese provinces of Xiamen and Quanzhou on Monday morning. The storm was responsible for “severe flooding in Beijing.” The severe storm caused damage to the infrastructure, which resulted in tens of thousands of people having to seek refuge elsewhere.

Since Tuesday, at least 20 people have died due to the torrential rain falling in Beijing. The typhoon was one of the strongest storms to hit northern China in recent years. Over 31,000 people were forced to leave their houses in Beijing, and work was halted at the city’s construction sites.

According to reports from the state-run news agency Xinhua, areas of north China and regions along the Yellow and Huaihe Rivers also experienced significant rainfall in addition to Beijing.

The President of China, Xi Jinping, has requested more efforts to be made in search and rescue, flood management, and disaster assistance.

According to a comment attributed to Xi, “It is crucial to ensure medical treatment for the injured and provide aid and comfort to the families of the deceased,”

According to Xinhua, the capital city of Beijing deactivated the highest level of flood warning on Wednesday after “the water flow in major rivers has gone below the warning mark.”
