Torrential rains lash China’s Zhengzhou City, Henan Province (700 km south-east of Beijing), causing landslides and flooding.

According to the meteorological observatory, a record-breaking 20 centimetres of rainfall occurred within an hour of July 20, causing mass evacuation of about 100,000 residents and at least 12 deaths.
