According to meteorological authorities, there has been a significant increase in precipitation in Dabu County this year compared to previous years. From January to April, the average cumulative rainfall in the county reached 744.6 millimeters, which is 84% more than the same period last year, which recorded 406.8 millimeters. Particularly noteworthy is the period since the onset of the rainy season in April (since April 4th), during which the average accumulated rainfall in the county exceeded 564 millimeters, marking a 331% increase compared to the same period last year. 

Continuous heavy rainfall in recent days has caused damage in multiple areas of Guangdong. On April 27th, around 15:00, a tornado struck Zhongluotan Town, Baiyun District, Guangzhou City, resulting in 5 deaths and 33 injuries. Around 2:10 am on May 1st, a highway road collapse occurred on the Meidagao Expressway in Dabu County of Guangdong Province. As of 5:30 am on May 2nd, 23 vehicles were found trapped, resulting in 36 deaths and 30 injuries.

According to information released by the Dabu County Meteorological Observatory at 8:00 on May 1st, within the next 24 hours, the geological disaster meteorological risk warning level for Huliao Town, Qingxi Town, Sanhe Town, Guangde Town, Taoyuan Town, Dama Town, Fenglang Town, Chayang Town, Gaobei Town, and Dabu Forest Farm is Level 3 (yellow), indicating a higher risk of geological disasters. Looking ahead to the frequent heavy precipitation in the coming week, due to the previously sustained heavy rainfall saturating the soil, the risk of geological disasters is high.  


Current needs identified by our local nonprofit partners include: 

  • Basic food and drink  
  • Hygiene and sanitation kits  
  • Temporary settlements  
  • Tools and equipment to clean houses  
  • Medium and longer-term recovery work such as livelihood recovery, rehabilitation of damaged houses and public facilities, and psychosocial support to floods-affected communities  
  • Continuous disaster preparedness work 


Give2Asia will continue to develop partnerships with organizations supporting relief and recovery. During this emergency response phase, Give2Asia is supporting the work of our partners with a range of program priorities, from providing urgent basic needs such as food, clean water, and health services to ensuring access to education for children, and economic rehabilitation services. Give2Asia is proud to work with the Partners listed below:
