The surface area of Poyang Lake, China's largest freshwater lake, has shrunk to less 200 square-kilometers. And the water level at Xingzi station, a hydrology mark, dropped to 7.86 meters. Poyang Lake is fed by five rivers in the province and empties into the nation's longest river, the Yangtze. [Xinhua/Zhou Ke]
