HEFEI, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, on Tuesday inspected east China's Anhui Province.
While visiting Funan County in the city of Fuyang, Xi went to a floodgate, a luggage and bag company and a "zhuangtai," a residential structure on raised ground with higher elevation that functions as a safe haven from river floods.
Xi checked the water situation of the Huaihe River and learned about local measures for flood control, disaster relief and post-flood production recovery. He also visited and consoled those affected by floods. (Xinhua/Ju Peng, Wang Ye)
