Less than a week after heavy rain and thunderstorms unleashed the worst flooding in more than 60 years on the Beijing area, another round of flooding rain pummeled the near by city of Tianjin.
Tianjin is located less than 100 miles to the southeast of Beijing and is home to nearly 13 million people.
This most recent round of flooding was on Thursday as over 6 inches of rain fell on the region, much of which occurred in less than 12 hours.
Residents of the city were forced to walk through waist-deep water on some city streets as travel by automobile was brought to a halt.
This round of flooding comes on the heels of the Beijing flooding which has now been blamed for at least 77 deaths and 2 billion dollars in damages.
Although the flooding in Tianjin has not claimed any confirmed lives at this point, it has already continued an uproar by Chinese residents blaming government failures for the magnitude of the destruction.
Yet another storm system will bring the potential for flooding rainfall to the region Saturday and Sunday before more tranquil weather arrives early next week.
