China: bad weather blocks Harbin-Taiping airport
This is the effect of an unprecedented snowstorm
In these hours China is shaken by an unprecedented snowstorm. According to the railway company China Railway Harbin Group, around 60 trains were blocked throughout the province, while others had to reschedule departures and arrivals. Furthermore, in these rounds, Harbin-Taiping International Airport recorded the cancellation of 113 departing and arriving flights.
It is the most tangible effect of the intense snowfall that has disrupted daily life in northeastern China. The movement of people and goods is also completely disrupted. Local authorities have ensured the supply of energy and food, and are active in repairing the damage. The National Meteorological Observatory has announced that low and medium-range snowfall will continue to occur in Heilongjiang. Furthermore, between Friday and Saturday, the snow is expected to melt and the consequent freezing of roads and electrical cables.
