Yangtze dry season continues

11 April 2012
Continued low water levels in the middle reaches of the Yangtze have caused officials from the Yangtze Waterway Bureau to warn that the dry season is longer this year than normal, according to China Transport News.

On 6 April, the water level in Chongqing was 3.39 metres and in Wuhan 3.59 metres, both readings being almost one metre lower than on the same day last year. This is increasing the risk of vessels colliding and getting stranded, waterway officials said.

Normally, the dry season starts in November and finishes by the end of March.
