[Photo/Sanxiang Metropolis Daily]A rainstorm that hit Changsha, Hunan, has brought into doubt the construction quality of the citys newly-opened airport terminal as photos of flooded floors appeared online, local newspaper Sanxiang Metropolis Daily reported on Monday.
At the departure hall of Terminal 2 of Changsha Huanghua Airport, which has been in use for only about 13 days, passengers needed to walk through a “waterfall” at the exit to the outside, said the report, quoting posts on microblogs.
But an unnamed airport staff member told the reporter that though there was floodwater in Terminal 2, it was not due to the poor design or lax construction of the terminal, the report said. “The rains came through the exit door and the rain was so heavy that it couldnt be tunneled out immediately.”
The sudden storm, which started at around 4.40 pm in the city on Monday, delayed or cancelled about 20 flights at the airport before services resumed two hours later.0Related StoriesHeavy rain a problem for C China cityPhotoNight views of Harbin through the lensTibetans take train home after pilgrimage or travellingWorlds largest shaftless Ferris wheel built in ChinaAncient cities to be connected by Xian-Chengdu high-speed railwaySnow turns Harbin into winter wonderlandReed Catkin Festival held in WuhanSocietyPoliticsHot TopicsScience/TechBusinessCover StoryFTZ simplifies process to launch businessesJapan can offer experience, expat saysApplication for work streamlinedAwareness of law aids resolutionAir Force units explore new airspaceLow wages and lack of respect responsible for kindergarten abuse, experts sayLiu heralds UK partnership in education and researchAgency ensuring natural gas supplyUN envoys trip to DPRK praised by BeijingChina moves to secure natural gas supply amid rising winter demandXi asks China, Canada to work for substantial tiesCooperation necessary for success, leaders sayLiving in space: How astronauts train, eat and workTeachers excused for lunchtime drinksWaiting for Shenzhou XICancer agent found in 44 cities drinking waterAt Ikea eatery, its no pay, no stayChina lose 2-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier, coach Gao resignsC919 gains another 55 orders, lifting total orders to 785Services offset dip in manufacturingFintech to energize real economy, cut risksChinas Long March rockets complete 60 commercial launchesEngineers achieve breakthroughChina-made components add securityOnline shopping rings up customer complaintsImport expo to focus on advanced techSME mobile market platform receives first clientsChina top importer of US soybeansAir China opens direct route from Beijing to BarcelonaInsurance-based trust launchedDandelion helping to sow the seeds of stability for membersCover storyVisa change may boost tourism to USThe wrong side of the roadBuilding ban begins to biteVillagers call on Japan to atone for massacreMost ViewedTodays Top NewsCooperation is complementaryWorldwide manhunt nets 50th fugitiveChina-Japan meet seeks cooperationAgency ensuring natural gas supplyGlobal manhunt sees China catch its 50th fugitiveCall for Red Boat Spirit a noble goal, official saysChina open to world of foreign talentFree trade studies agreed on as Li meets with Canadian PM TrudeauEmojis on austerity rules from top anti-graft authority go viralXi: All aboard internet expressState Council NewsPremier Li urges information integration to serve the publicPremier Li urges information disclosure on public resource allocationThe popular Beijing grill “The Lancet”, which is named after the famous medical journal, received a special customer on Sunday — William Summerskill, one of the four senior executive editors of the journal, according to the grills weibo account.HighlightsBlind womans request for braille law exam paper deniedCamp bridges cultural divideSmall cities not ideal place for metropolis escaper: reportParents leave behind 9 million children in ChinaHot TopicsGrassroots delegate: Craftsman tackling new, tough projects 2nd space lab on its way to key mission Netizens criticize Olympic uniforms Rough and tough world of soldiers training Ground level Rule of law Panda China youths Anti-terror drive Family planningSpecialXis push to eradicate poverty1000 days: Deepening reforms…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
