BEIJING, July 11 (Xinhua) -- China has swung into top gear to strengthen its flood-defense network as incessant downpours continue to wreak havoc across vast stretches of the country, with unusually high precipitation causing alarm.


The country has empowered flood-forecasting platforms with new technologies to improve accuracy and ensure the public are alerted as early as possible, said Liu Zhiyu, an official with the MWR.

Each time the flood warnings were triggered, the country spared no efforts in pooling resources to address major problems.
