Streets were left submerged as water sprayed out of a sewer after a heavy rainstorm in northern China.
The video, filmed in the city of Xi'an in Shaanxi Province on August 3, shows water spraying into the air from a sewer and the street being submerged.
Police officers stood in the deep floodwater to prevent vehicles from driving into the deeper areas and to help rescue trapped residents.
The local meteorological observatory has issued an orange warning signal (the second strongest level) for the rainstorm.
