Heavy flooding in Nanjing due to torrential rain lashing the city has inundated the Nanjing University of Science and Technology and surrounding area, turning the student dorms into a water park.
According to NetEase, the water is around 1.5 meters deep and shows little signs of subsiding as drains struggle to cope and the ground remains saturated.
The recent stormy weather has affected cities all along the east-coast of China. In Shanghai, heavy rainfall coupled with thunder and lightening has led to the cancellation of more than 240 flights and delays to 400 others at Shanghai’s two main airports.
