Three will be showers and heavy rain today and tomorrow, the Shenzhen Meteorological Observatory said.

For most of the days in the coming week, the weather will be cloudy with sunny periods or overcast with showers. Rainfall will intensify over the weekend, the observatory said.

Shenzhen has entered the flood season. Rainfall over the weekend forced the observatory to issue the first citywide heavy rain warning of the year Saturday.

Heavy rain Saturday also forced cancellation of 90 flights at Shenzhen International Airport and more than 50 flights were delayed for more than two hours.

Some low-lying areas and roads were flooded by the rain, according to the city’s disaster and flood control office.

In the Huaide New Village housing estate in Fuyong, Bao’an District, on Friday more than 30 vehicles in a parking lot were flooded with seawater that came through an underground tunnel of the Metro Line 11 project.

“In the morning when I got a phone call from the property management, I learned more than 20 vehicles had been towed away by insurance companies and my car was also flooded by the water,” a driver surnamed Xu said.

The family of a woman surnamed Zhang had their house flooded.

“I heard the wall collapse at around 2 a.m. and found water rushing into my home. We immediately ran up to the second floor. All the things on the first floor have water damage,” Zhang said.

The flood caused about 100,000 yuan (US$16,350) in losses to the family.
