Beijing, Aug 12 (PTI)
Around 360 flights operating in and out of the international airport of the Chinese capital were cancelled today due to incessant rain that continues to batter the city.

The airport said operations were seriously affected and the situation will likely continue as a thunderstorm is expected this evening. There were 234 arrivals and 181 departures as of 11 am.

More than 400 flights were cancelled yesterday.

Aviation authorities have issued a yellow alert for massive flight delays.

The National Meteorological Centre forecast precipitation up to 70 mm in Beijing in the next 24 hours while other northern regions will only see light rainfall.

Meanwhile, rainstorms will thrash some southern areas, including Guizhou and Guangxi, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
