The water level of the Harbin hydrological station, which is located in the capital of Heilongjiang Province, rose to the warning line of 118.3 meters, according to the Ministry of Water Resources.
The ministry is maintaining Level III emergency response for flood and drought prevention at present, which was raised from level IV to III on Monday in light of the flood situation in northeast China.
