Yangtze MSA issues low visibility alert

16 January 2013
Yangtze Maritime Safety Authorities have issued a low visibility alert following continuous heavy fog over the past few days in Yichang, Jingzhou’s Shashi district, Chenglingji and Wuhan. According to reports from the Yangtze MSA, between 8 and 13 January, heavy fog reduced the visibility to just 500 metres in the middle reaches of the river.

Because no rain has been predicted in the coming days, the authorities believe that the heavy fog will continue. Yichang MSA, in charge of the middle reaches, has activated its emergency rescue code and deployed 15 patrol boats and 150 officials in key areas to prevent shipping chaos once the fog lifts.
