The country has been experiencing severe convective weather and the frequency of heavy rainfall is expected to remain high until August, according to the National Meteorological Center.

Major rivers and lakes in Wuxi, including Taihu Lake and the Grand Canal, have seen their water levels rise due to continuous downpours in recent days.

All government departments across Wuxi have been working together to ensure the city is not adversely affected by the heavy rains.

The city has also swung into top gear to strengthen its flood-defense network as incessant downpours continue to wreak havoc across vast stretches of the country.
