Storm drenches Shanghai

Hundreds of flights were delayed and residential complexes were flooded as a thunderstorm doused Shanghai yesterday afternoon.

The storm dumped more than 100 millimeters of rain in Pudong and Chongming County, forcing the closure of one lane on the Changjiang Tunnel-Bridge for nearly two hours, the Shanghai Flood Control Headquarters said.

Meanwhile, more than 200 flights at Pudong International Airport were delayed while another six incoming flights with a combined 1,400 passengers were diverted to Hongqiao airport, frontier inspection officers said.

Hail stones were reported at Caolu Township in Pudong around 3pm, the flood control headquarters said.

Meteorologists said the heat will return as it will be 35 degrees Celsius tomorrow.
