China's national observatory on Thursday renewed a yellow alert for drought as the lack of rainfall persisted in multiple regions.

Parts of Hunan, Jiangxi, Chongqing, and Guizhou suffered from extreme drought, and Jiangsu, Henan, Guangdong, and Tibet experienced moderate to severe drought, according to the National Meteorological Center.

While precipitation in Guizhou, Guangxi, and Jiangsu will bring some relief in the next three days, most areas mentioned above will continue to see dry weather.

The observatory advised local authorities to utilize emergency water sources and ensure the supply, particularly for residents, and cautioned against forest fire risks in some places.

China has a four-tier, color-coded weather warning system, with red representing the most severe warning, followed by orange, yellow, and blue.
