Extreme weather in China with droughts and floods

Story: Farmers in Sandu county of Guizhou Province irrigated their cracked fields with water from canals. Chongqing villagers queued up to receive water from trucks driving through the mountains to reach their villages. Meanwhile, elsewhere, in the northern Chinese city of Tangshan in Hebei province, villagers were trapped in their homes after heavy rains and floods. Rescuers were seen carrying victims out in lifeboats. Since June, China has been grappling with extreme weather, from heatwaves to historic floods. Governments have condemned climate change, saying it will increasingly affect economies and societies.
