China Suffers Widespread Drought

Sing Tao Daily , Posted: Feb 10, 2009

HONG KONG China has been suffering the most severe drought in 50 years. The Sing Tao Daily reports that 17 provinces in China, from north to south, are suffering. The drought began last October. The armed forces have been mobilized to bring water to the agricultural lands. The central government set aside 10 billion RMB (about $1.5 billion) to combat the drought. Experts expect the drought will last at least three more month and will create more damage than last year's snowstorm.
