0 Comment(s)Print E-mail, February 21, 2013

After more than 120 days without rain, the draught in Chuxiong, a Yi ethnic prefecture in southwestern Yunnan province, is rapidly becoming more severe. A water reservoir in Chuxiong's Yongren county went dry on Feb. 20, 2013. Many local aquatic insects were found dead at the base of the reservoir. The lingering drought has left 604,000 people and 335,000 livestock short of drinking water. This is Yunnan's fourth consecutive drought year. [Photo/]
