reporters learned from the municipal emergency committee that according to the “emergency plan for flood control and drought relief in Chengdu” (CBF  No. 39), the municipal emergency committee will adjust the flood control level II emergency response to the flood control level IV emergency response from 18:00 on August 18, 2020. All District (city) and county emergency committees, flood control and Drought Relief Headquarters, and member units of municipal flood control and drought relief headquarters are requested to carry out flood control level IV emergency response actions according to the division of responsibilities. At present,
are still in the main flood season. From the current research and judgment, the average total precipitation of the whole city from late August to September is 220 mm, which is more than the annual average (192.0 mm). The situation of flood control and disaster relief is still grim. In addition, the eastern and western areas along the mountain where heavy rainfall happened in the early stage overlapped, and the soil moisture content was saturated. Therefore, it is necessary to strictly prevent mountain torrents and geological disaster risks. It is necessary to further strengthen the rolling monitoring and forecasting of rainfall, water and flood conditions, adhere to the principle of safety first, do a good job of early warning and risk transfer accurately, and resolutely prevent casualties caused by untimely transfer and ineffective organization. We should pay special attention to the prevention of excessive floods and urban waterlogging, strengthen the inspection and risk elimination work, and implement the technical prevention measures for civil air defense and physical defense. It is necessary to comprehensively carry out the nuclear disaster investigation, systematically do a good job in the work of mass transfer and resettlement, effective material protection, and restoration of living order, and pay close attention to the post disaster recovery work of roads, bridges, water conservancy facilities and water and electricity supply damaged by floods, so as to restore the normal production and living order of cities as soon as possible.
