Zheng Guoguang, director of the China Meteorological Administration, urged his department to ensure the accuracy of weather forecasts to minimize the damage brought by changes in the weather in coming days.

Meteorological monitoring in areas especially prone to flood and other weather disasters need to be strengthened, he said.

"North China will face changeable weather conditions in the near future, and the Haihe River basin is likely to see more challenges on flood control," he said at a working conference on Saturday.

"At present, relief work is still continuing in many regions after torrential rains hit in the past few weeks. Therefore, any weather change will have an impact on local relief work," he said.

The State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters has urged its branches in Shanxi, Shaanxi, Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia and Inner Mongolia to strengthen efforts on flood control.
