Thousands of people have been affected as rainstorms continue to ravage southwest China.

CHONGQING, July 2 (Xinhua) -- China's national observatory renewed the blue alert for rainstorms as downpours continued to sweep vast stretches of the country on Wednesday.

In Chongqing Municipality's Qijiang District, rainfalls have caused an increasing amount of water to flow into the rivers in downtown areas, and some guardrails along the rivers were damaged by the rush of water.

A total of 25,801 residents in the district have been affected by the Wednesday rainstorms, and dozens of rural houses were hit by floods.
