Heavy rains flooded several parts of the She County in Anhui Province. Many residents were stranded, including over 200 students scheduled to take the college entrance exams. 

Firefighters rushed to the scene within 20 minutes, transferring dozens of students and residents to safe areas in kayaks. The rescue work is still underway.

As the county was fighting the worst floods in 50 years, both the Chinese and the Math test for the national college entrance exam have been postponed, but the tests scheduled for tomorrow will be held as scheduled, local authorities said Tuesday afternoon.
