BBC drone footage gives glimpse of actual China flood damage

Kolkata, India: Drone footage in the aftermath of China’s devastating floods gives chilling visuals into the actual extent of damage from the demonic deluges.

The footage captures China’s Henan province, shows stranded cars and a highway still substantially underwater, the BBC reports.

The devastating floods facing China

Floodwater lapped through a subway station on a busy hour in China on Tuesday, prompting desperate passengers to flee while others were swept helplessly off platforms, the BBC reported.

Water crept into one train carriage and rose from ankle to waist to neck height in one particularly scary incident.

Panicked commuters strained skyward to catch their breath, as others dragged shorter commuters into the dwindling air pocket above them, the horrific scene showed.

As the floodwater creeps upstairs, several people can be seen standing on chairs and hanging to the ceiling in scary videos uploaded on social media.

One attempted to break a window, only to discover that there was still more water outside the carriage.

“I can’t speak anymore,” one woman wrote on the social media site Weibo. “If no rescue comes in 20 minutes, hundreds of us will lose our lives,” the BBC reported.

Heavy rainfall forced the subway system in Zhengzhou, capital of China’s Henan province, to shut down Tuesday, stranding passengers.

At least twelve died and five others were injured in the subway flood, according to city authorities, as water coursed below ground on Tuesday evening in Zhengzhou in central China’s Henan province.
