Sleepless night for so many people in Henan as the rain keeps falling and northern areas are increasingly facing major problems. Many people are calling out for help for the smaller city of Weihui, where water levels are rising up to waist level and sandbags are needed. pic.twitter.com/LKp3pW3Jto?

Water has entered the Zhengzhou metro due to continuous heavy and heavy rains. According to officials, 12 people died inside the metro itself. While five people are injured. More than 50 people have been rescued safely. People were terribly terrified to see the metro filled with water. The passenger wrote on social media, 'The water had come up to my chest. I was much more scared. However, due to low air pressure in the metro over water, there was panic due to inability to breathe.'
