China's north-eastern port city of Heihe has been hit by some of the worst floods in thirty years.
The Daheihe island bordering Russia was partially submerged as waters continued to rise following days of heavy rain.
The downpour has forced the Heilongjang river over its banks, covering farm lands, inundating homes and forcing immigration offices to close.
Border officials are trying to work around the rising water levels.
In North China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, animal husbandry has been widely hampered by serious flooding inundating several major pastures for days. Over 800 cows, 2,000 sheep and 200 horses were kept at the Sanhe ranch.
