China upgrades emergency response for low temperatures in Hunan


The Ministry of Emergency Management upgraded the emergency response for disasters induced by low temperatures, rain, snow and freezing conditions in central China's Hunan Province from level-IV to level-III on Sunday.

The ministry has also activated a level-IV emergency response for the same reason in east China's Jiangxi Province.

The ministry maintained the level-III emergency response in Anhui and Hubei provinces, as well as the level-IV emergency response in Hebei, Shanxi, Jiangsu, Shandong, Henan, Chongqing, Guizhou and Shaanxi.

Since last Saturday, the ministry and two other government departments have dispatched 60,000 disaster relief supplies to Anhui, Hubei and Guizhou, including cotton-padded coats and quilts.
