A serious flood hit Qinghai's Golmud River basin due to recent rainstorms and melting snow. Wenquan Reservoir, a large reservoir filled by a tributary of the Golmud River, reported a dangerously high water level only about 3.02 meters from the dam's top at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, local authorities said.
