Worst drought in 50 years along Yangtze

The worst drought in 50 years to hit provinces along the Yangtze River may continue to plague Central China.

The China Meteorological Administration warned on Tuesday that little rain is expected in the coming 10 days and highs of 36 C are likely to hit the central and southern parts of China.

These regions will mostly see hot, dry weather during the coming week, the administration said, adding that local departments will activate cloud seeding when weather conditions are fit.
