Sandstorms continue to blast North China, blanketing many cities in floating dust. The China Meteorological Administration says the bad weather will last till Tuesday.

Meteorologists say a cyclone from Mongolia will affect most of northern China in the next two days. Temperatures will drop by four to eight degrees Celsius. Sandstorms are forecast in parts of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Gansu Province and the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

Qiao Lin, engineer China Meteorological Admin., said, "Sandstorms have affected air quality. People should avoid outdoor activities when the harsh weather is coming."

The dusty weather is sending many people to the hospital.

Doctor Beijing Chaoyang hospital, said, "For people with respiratory diseases such as bronchial asthma and pneumonia, sandstorms may be a trigger."

The China Meteorological Administration has forecast 11 to 15 sandstorms in northern areas this spring.

Landslide leaves seven dead, one injured in SW China

CHONGQING, April 2 (Xinhua) -- Seven people were killed and one was injured when a passing bus was hit in a landslide in a mountainous county in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality on Monday.

Pu Yang, secretary of the Miao and Tujia Autonomous County of Pengshui, said that torrential downpour on Sunday night caused a landslide near the highway connecting Pengshui to the Tujia Autonomous County of Shizhu, north to Pengshui.

The landslide happened at 8 a.m. on Monday 5.4 km away from the seat of Pengshui, when more than 120 cu m of rock fell off from a slope, hitting the bus which was passing through the spot.

Among the seven killed was the bus driver.

The injured is now hospitalized.

The exact number of people aboard the bus is still unknown.

Another 200 cu m of rocks are about to fall off the slope and rescuers are taking measures to deal with the emergency, according to Pu.

5 bodies recovered at subway collapse site

Five bodies of the six missing workers have been pulled from the collapsed subway construction site in Beijing. The rescue operation is still underway to remove the sixth body which has been located.

Part of Beijing's No.10 subway route, currently under construction, collapsed last Wednesday. Experts say its location was once a natural pool and had not been properly filled in, leaving earth to be loose and unstable.

Rescue workers have built a frame to support the vertical emergency tunnel while digging an additional rescue escape route. Relatives to those who died in the collapse have been arriving in Beijing.

Now then let that be a lesson leant.

Stop polluting at such a vast rate, and your climate might calm down a bit.

The chinese are soon to run out of drinking water due to toxic heavy metals in the water table, are running out of natural resources (not looking for their own, but buying large amounts of other peoples up) and are bloody cheeky fuckers telling the USA / UK they need to pollute less!!!

Fuck off - china is now the most polluted air / skies /sea / rivers on earth, and we are all having to cut back so they can keep their pollution rising?

Dirty yellow bastards, clean your act up!

Or, the lesson could be that we can do nothing about the sun increasing the amount of energy in the atmosphere.

Maybe the USA could start cleaning up the mercury in its water supplies? Or would that be too much to ask of George Bush's friends in various polluting industries?

At the end of the day the Chinese are just following the rest of the industrialised world: i.e. crapping on their own porch and reaping the consequences.

Yellow sand from China covers Japanese cities in clouds of dust

The yellow sand produces a haze over buildings in Nagoya on Monday morning.

NAGOYA -- Huge clouds of yellow sand carried on strong winds from China covered areas of western Japan on Monday, reducing visibility and coating buildings with dust.

Meteorological officials said visibility in the cities of Nagoya, Tsu and Gifu was reduced to about 3 kilometers as a result of the sand. Because of the poor visibility, officials warned people to take care when driving on expressways in affected areas.

Yellow sand, also referred to as yellow dust or Asian dust, is whipped up by winds over the Chinese mainland and carried over Japan by westerly winds at an altitude of about 10,000 meters.

The yellow haze was expected to remain until Tuesday, when a trough of low pressure is due to pass over the country, officials said. In addition to poor visibility, officials said the sand could make washing that had been hung out in affected areas turn yellow. (Mainichi)

The pollution simply follows wherever the manufacturing goes, aside from car emissions. No business anywhere wants to compromise their business by caring about the environment. Even if governments impose rules, the businesses will always try to wriggle their way out of them.

Water-level drop prompts volcano fear
By Jonathan Yeung (China Daily)
Updated: 2007-04-03 07:05

A record decline in the water level at Huguangyan's volcanic lake in Guangdong has raised concern that the sleeping volcano is about to have a wake-up call.

At 2.3 square kilometers, Huguangyan is the world's largest volcanic lake. It is located in the southwest city of Zhanjiang.

It has recorded its lowest water level in 10 years and during the second half of 2006, the level dropped 5 meters.

The phenomenon, however, should not be a cause for worry, said Chen Quan, the director of Zhanjiang's seismology bureau. He ruled out the possibility of an eruption.

"Our observation has not shown any abnormal sign indicating that a re-eruption will occur at Huguangyan," said Chen.

Evolved from an extinct volcano centuries ago, the lake experienced a dramatic reduction in water during the second half of 2006 when the level fell 5 meters to reach 13 meters.

Luo Shuwen, senior engineer from Guangdong geological prospecting bureau, said Huguangyan's water level drop was due mainly to a decline in rainfall last year.

Luo said that between September and December alone, precipitation around Huguangyan was just 231.0 millimeters while the evaporation was as high as 445.3 millimeters.

"Water supply therefore lagged far behind water loss," Luo said.

He added that there were other reasons for the problem.

"Working entities around Huguangyan kept pumping water from the lake which also caused Huguangyan's water level to decline," Luo said.

Scientists with Zhanjiang meteorological bureau agreed that there was no need for people to worry.

Officials at the scenic spot have been trying to deal with the issue. They have submitted proposals to Zhanjiang's municipal government to preserve Asia's only Maar lake.

The first idea seeks to pump water from a well into the lake while another calls for a restriction on pumping water out of Huguangyan.

Experts who have been doing research on Huguangyan Maar lake for many years agreed that working entities that use water from Huguangyan should be restricted. They also say that pumping in water from other lakes was not feasible.

The lake's deposits can provide thousands of years of information about the earth and it is commonly referred to as "earth's yearbook."
