BEIJING -- China's National Meteorological Center on Sunday renewed a yellow alert for rainstorms in some parts of the country.

From 2 pm Sunday to 2 pm Monday, rainstorms are likely in parts of Hubei, Henan, Anhui, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Hunan, Chongqing, Guizhou, Sichuan, Yunnan, Shanxi, and Hebei. Heavy downpours up to 200 mm may lash parts of these regions, said the center.

Some of these regions will also experience short-term heavy rainfall with up to over 70 mm of hourly precipitation, accompanied by thunderstorms and gales.

The meteorological center has advised local governments to make appropriate preparations and check the drainage systems in cities, farmland, and fishponds.

It has also suggested taking traffic control measures in road sections with heavy downpours, guiding traffic in water-logged streets, and halting outdoor operations in hazardous areas.

China has a four-tier, color-coded weather warning system, with red representing the most severe warning, followed by orange, yellow, and blue.
