Anhui Province, located between the Yangtze River and the Huai River, was overly flooded because the government decided to protect Henan Province and Jiangsu Province. However, the disasters in Anhui Province and the calls for assistance are not able to be researched on Weibo and are also ignored by the Chinese state-run media. On July 22 and 23, Anhui netizens were outraged on Weibo, questioning why the floods were not taken seriously and got no attention.
