SHOCKING footage shows terrified passengers trapped inside an underground train as floodwaters rise to shoulder level in China.

Rescuers have recovered the bodies of three workers in a flooded tunnel under construction in a southern Chinese city, as search efforts for 11 others trapped since Tuesday continue.

With heavy downpours hitting central China in recent days, devastating flooding is wreaking havoc in many areas.

Rain continued to pound down in the province Henan on Tuesday, bursting the banks of major rivers, flooding the streets of several cities and trapping subway passengers in deep floodwaters.

Henan, which is double the size of Austria, has been hit by storms since the weekend in an unusually active rainy season.

No deaths or casualties have been reported in the region, but the daily lives of its 94 million people have been upended by transport closures.

In Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan on the banks of the Yellow River, more than 200mm of rain fell in one hour on Tuesday, forcing the city to stop all subway train services.
