The death toll caused by downpours and floods has increased to 51 in the Henan provincial capital of Zhengzhou.

Zhengzhou, meanwhile, downgraded its emergency response level as it continued to clean up after this week’s devastating floods, but other parts of Henan province were bracing for more heavy rainfall, the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post reported.
