Dajingmen Section of the Great Wall Collapsed due to Heavy Rain

Dajingmen Section of the Great Wall Collapsed due to Heavy RainA section of the great wall in North China Hebei Province collapsed after days of continuous rain. The wall collapse occurred on August 6 after strong currents of water came down from the mountains crushed a section near Dajingmen of the great wall near Zhangjiakou.

Repair work is on the way and workers have already cleared the fallen section that extends 36 meters and have also reinforced loose sections to prevent more collapses. Experts have also spotted cracks in other parts of the wall near the fallen section. Also experts from the cultural relic’s protection are making proposals that will help repair the damaged areas.

Built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) the Dajingmen section endured years of erosion which also contributed to the collapse of the wall. A huge amount of rainfall has been hitting China since the rainy season started which caused flooding in the country.
