Climate-induced natural disasters continue to occur one after another in China

Climate-induced natural disasters continue to occur one after another in China


The Chinese government recently released that Record temperatures have caused severe drought across half of China. Even the Tibetan Plateau, known as a frigid area, is experiencing intense heat. The temperature may rise further.

China, the world’s second-largest economy, has been experiencing one after another natural disaster for the last 70 days. Scientists are concerned about this. They say more and more wildfires, floods, and droughts are likely to occur. Due to climate change, this adverse weather situation is occurring.

China’s Ministry of Agriculture says temperature records have been kept for more than six decades. The southern part of the country has been burning for the longest time. Experts say it could be one of the worst fires recorded in world history.

According to China’s National Climate, “severe” and “unprecedented” drought conditions have developed in large parts of southern China, including the Tibetan Plateau. Areas of the Yangtze River basin have been hit hardest by the drought.

The Yangtze basin extends from the coastal area of Shanghai to Sichuan province in the southwest. More than 37 million people live in the Yangtze basin.

The country’s meteorological authority expects continued high temperatures in the major city of Chongqing and Sichuan and Zhejiang provinces to top 40 degrees in the coming days. However, the intensity of wildfires has decreased in some areas.

China’s state broadcaster CCTV reported that heavy rain fell in parts of southwestern Sichuan. Although the intensity of the wildfires decreased a little, around 30,000 people in the region have evacuated to safe places.

Meanwhile, Cyclone Ma-on hit the coast of Guangdong province and the semi-autonomous region of Hong Kong in the southeast of the country.

Chinese authorities say high temperatures in southern China, Jiangxi, and Anhui regions have eased slightly. But for the next three days, this high temperature will continue in the Sichuan basin and the provinces around Shanghai.

As the temperature in some places exceeds 45 degrees Celsius, there has been a crisis in power supply to industrial areas in several provinces. On the other hand, electricity demand has increased in many cities.

The authorities are struggling to deal with the power crisis. Due to the power crisis, production activities in several factories have also stopped.
