Cold wave delivers snow to swathe of China

A new round of cold wave has delivered snow to many parts of China on Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing down temperatures and disrupting traffic. In the Changji Hui Autonomous Prefecture in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, snow and ice covered many sections of roads as the temperature dropped to minus 20 degrees Celsius. In the county of Manas, the freezing temperature and heavy snow forced many people to put on warmer clothes.

The snow caused the closure of a section of an expressway in Xinjiang, forcing vehicles off to the slower provincial highways. It was reported that more than 1,000 vehicles were stranded in Manas. The county’s traffic police turned out in full to be on duty to patrol the roads and control the traffic. Snow gradually stopped in Changji starting from Wednesday morning and the temperature is expected to rise in the next week.
