17 April 2013
Chongqing Maritime Safety Authorities confirmed that shipping restrictions have been imposed in the Chongqing section of the Yangtze River trunkline due to severe drought, according to a news story published in China Water Transport Newspaper.

Local maritime safety officials said that 13 out of the 38 districts and counties in the municipality are still affected by severe drought despite significant rainfall earlier in the month. The water level in the Chongqing section of the Yangtze trunkline is two metres below recent averages at this time of year. Shipping restrictions have been imposed to ensure safety, though no specific details were given.
