FROM CGTN - A brief but torrential rainstorm battered Yangcheng County in northern China's Shanxi Province on Tuesday, leaving streets flooded and vehicles submerged.
Although the rain only lasted for little over 30 minutes, the precipitation level still reached 32.5 millimeters.
Many bystanders made videos of the flash flooding, which show floodwater exceeding one meter in some areas.
The floodwater rushed down streets to low-lying areas, washing away motorbikes and automobiles.
The local meteorological department issued a blue alert for flooding, the lowest level in China's four-tier warning system.
No casualties have been reported.
