China's southern provinces on Tuesday continued to be hit by rainstorms, with water levels of rivers rising sharply, causing serious floods and mudslides in cities and rural areas.

Around 145, 000 people were evacuated from areas in Guangxi autonomous region, officials said.

Over 2,700 houses collapsed and 10-thousand more were damaged to varying degrees, according to a government report.

State broadcaster CCTV said more than 1,000 villagers were trapped in a flooded village in Guilin of Guangxi.

In Jiangxi Province, the rainstorm and flood have affected nearly 500,000 people and 433,000 hectares of crops land, according to local authorities.

In Zhejiang Province, the water levels of the rivers flowing through villages near city of Quzhou have been rising after days of torrential rain and low-lying areas have been completely submerged.

CCTV showed video of a rescue team going to a cattle farm in Quzhou to move the cattle and farmers to safe places.

In Guangdong Province, about 274,000 people have been affected by the flood according to the provincial emergency management department.

Some 15,000 residents were evacuated from cities including Shaoguan and Qingyuan due to floods and landslides, CCTV reported.

Heavy rainfall damaged roads in some parts of the province causing severe traffic disruption and delays.

The local meteorological department has forecast more rain for Monday and Tuesday.

Chinese authorities on Sunday issued this year's first red alert, the most severe warning, for possible mountain torrents in parts of the country.

China's ministry of water resources has warned that there will be more rainstorms in southern provinces early next week.
