Passengers trapped in a subway are among at least 18 people killed in widespread flooding that hit China’s central Henan province on July 20, 2021. Video showed people trapped in carriages and on platforms in the provincial capital, Zhengzhou, by the flooding caused when nearly a year’s worth of rain fell over three days starting July 17. At least a dozen of those killed were people trapped in train carriages and on platforms. About 200,000 people have been displaced in the province. Local authorities have also warned about a 20-metre (66ft) breach in the Yihetan dam in the city of Luoyang, saying that the structure "could collapse at any time". Some viewers may find images in this video disturbing.
