BEIJING, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday issued warnings for flash floods in east and south China.

Parts of east China's Fujian Province and south China's Guangdong Province are likely to see flash floods from 8 p.m. Thursday to 8 p.m. Friday, according to a yellow alert issued jointly by the Ministry of Water Resources and the China Meteorological Administration.

Some of the areas in the two provinces are highly prone to flash floods, the authorities said, issuing an orange alert for these regions.

The authorities also warned of possible flash floods caused by heavy rains in other parts of the country, urging stepped-up efforts for disaster prevention.

Typhoon Lupit made its second landfall in Zhangzhou City, east China's Fujian Province, at around 4:50 p.m. on Thursday, after landing in south China's Shantou city, Guangdong Province, at about 11:20 a.m., packing strong winds.

China has a four-tier color-coded weather warning system, with red representing the most severe warning, followed by orange, yellow and blue.
