Recent downpours have killed 33 people, with 15 others still missing

Flooding in southern China should ease off on Tuesday as the rainfall that has troubled the region for more than 10 days subsides.

China's national weather observatory issued a yellow alert, the second-lowest in a four-tier weather warning system, on Monday for the seventh consecutive day of high temperatures in the northern part of the country. But it lifted a blue alert, the lowest in the warning system, which was issued late on Sunday for rain in the south.
