Flood control efforts are currently underway in Jiangxi province as the water level of the Yangtze River continues to rise because of heavy rainfall. In response to the escalating flood situation, a town in Jiangxi, specifically Jiangzhou town in Jiujiang city, has issued an open letter urging locals to return home and help with flood control operations. The town government expressed the severity of the flood control situation due to rising water levels caused by upstream inflows and heavy rainfall, indicating a critical need for additional manpower to protect Jiangzhou.

The open letter, which was published on the town government's official WeChat account, received significant attention and numerous responses from the community. Residents, both within and outside the town, were called upon to unite and safeguard Jiangzhou against the relentless flooding. With a population of less than 10,000, primarily consisting of elderly and women, Jiangzhou faces a challenging situation due to the lack of manpower and resources to effectively combat the floodwaters. The town mayor, Wang Zifeng, highlighted the unity among Jiangzhou residents as a source of strength that empowers them to issue such calls for support during crises like this.

Reflecting on a similar situation in 2020, when the town issued a plea for help during the rainy season, Wang mentioned that thousands had responded to the call then. Despite the rain belt moving away from Jiujiang, local officials, including Ye Jianchun, the governor of Jiangxi province, emphasized the need for continuous vigilance against rising water levels and potential threats like dam seepage and landslides. Ye stressed the importance of upholding safety standards to ensure the protection of lives and property in the region. The recent heavy rainfall, spanning from June 29 to July 2, has resulted in 15 consecutive days of rain and a significant increase in precipitation, posing a serious risk to communities along the Yangtze River, such as Jiangzhou. Additionally, the Poyang Lake in the region has recorded water levels well above the warning level, signaling further challenges in managing the ongoing flood situation.
