A cold front has hit many parts of China. The northwestern Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and the northern Inner Mongolia are being slammed by the heaviest snowstorms in a decade. Local officials and residents are making every effort to relieve the situation.


The snowstorm disrupted railway and highway traffic in Inner Mongolia. The snow on the tracks was 2.5 meters high.

The average depth of snow on provincial roads is half a meter deep. More than a meter of snow accumulated on the worst affected route, highway No. 207.

Railway and transportation departments are trying hard to clear the snow. No trains have been stranded by the snow, and almost all roads have reopened.
