Bei­jing: China’s me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal au­thor­ity yes­ter­day con­tin­ued to is­sue a blue alert, the lowest in a four-tier warn­ing sys­tem, as rain­storms will hit most parts of the coun­try’s south­ern re­gions. Parts of Hu­nan, Jiangxi, Zhe­jiang prov­inces and Guangxi Zhuang au­ton­o­mous re­gion would see tor­ren­tial rains, strong winds or hail yes­ter­day, the Na­tional Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Cen­tre (NMC) said in a state­ment on its web­site. The rain­fall was ex­pected to reach 50 to 90 mil­lime­ters in the prov­inces of Zhe­jiang, Jiangxi, Hu­nan and Fu­jian, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment. The NMC sug­gested peo­ple af­fected by the rain­storms take pre­cau­tions against pos­si­ble moun­tain tor­rents, mud-rock flows and land­slides and avoid out­door ac­tiv­i­ties. China has a four-tier colour-coded warn­ing sys­tem for se­vere weather, with red be­ing the most se­ri­ous, fol­lowed by or­ange, yel­low and blue. Xin­hua
