Watch: Two Dams In China's Inner Mongolia Collapse After Heavy Rain 

Two dams collapsed in China's northwestern region of Inner Mongolia after heavy rains, Reuters reports, citing a statement from the water ministry on Monday. 

Both dams were located in the Inner Mongolian city of Hulunbuir and collapsed on Sunday. There were more than 1.6 trillion cubic feet of water capacity between both dams. 

On July 18, the dams on the open spillway of Yong'an Reservoir and Xinfa Reservoir in the Daur Autonomous Banner of Morin Dawa, were breached and collapsed as the water level of the Nuomin River continued to rise because of heavy rain, according to People's Daily.

The dam collapse reportedly affected 16,660 people, flooded 325,622 mu (21708.1 hectares) of farmland, and destroyed 22 bridges, 124 culverts, and 15.6 kilometers of highways.

At 8 pm on Sunday, the national flood control administration issued a third-level emergency response and sent a working group to the scene to guide and assist local emergency management.

Local citizens were evacuated to safe places before the collapse, and no casualties have been reported as of press time. -Global Times

Footage posted on social media shows the collapse and subsequent flooding downstream.
