East China's Anhui Province on Saturday announced that 12 cities in the province had entered the emergency period of flood control from noon as continuous downpours have wreaked havoc across vast stretches of the country.

The 12 cities on the banks of the Yangtze River, Huaihe River and Chaohu Lake include Hefei, Bengbu and Wuhu, according to the provincial flood control and drought relief headquarters.
