Reservoir collapses in Hainan city

A small reservoir collapsed at about 10pm yesterday in Xinglong Town of Wanning City, Hainan Province, with ensuing floods bursting a sideline road toward the southernmost Chinese province's eastern expressway and lashing two cars away, the city government confirmed today.

Three people inside the two cars, who fell into the water in the accident, have been hospitalized. No death has been reported.

A local electricity supply company had dispatched 30 people, together with about 200 others, for the rescue operation, said Chen Xingzhang, a city government official.

The expressway's Xinglong section has been blocked.

The Bofeng reservoir has a water storage capacity of 100,000 cubic meters.

The cause of the accident is being investigated.
