Continuous heavy rain in Jiangxi has led to an increase in the surface area of the Poyang Lake, China's largest freshwater lake. The surface area of the Poyang Lake had reached 3,526 square kilometers, 502 square kilometers larger than that on May 6. It also surpassed the historical average surface area of the lake.
