Steel bridge washed away as flash floods hit China

A steel bridge was washed away after flash floods hit Jianyang District, the northern part of Fujian province in China. The bridge collapsed after a torrent of broken branches and driftwood rushed downstream, causing the water level to rise rapidly in under 10 hours on June 28. Local residents in low-lying areas have been evacuated. There were no casualties from the bridge collapsing. According to reports, the around 150-metre-long bridge was built in 2017. The tree branches and woods from upstream piled up at the pier, causing the bridge to distort and collapse.
