China kicks off emergency response to drought   13-08-09 16:38

BEIJING, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- China's National Commission for Disaster Reduction and the Ministry of Civil Affairs (MCA) kicked off a level-four emergency response to severe drought in central Jiangxi and Hubei provinces on Thursday evening.

According to local civil affairs authorities' reports, as of Thursday, lingering drought had impacted 11.53 million people across the two provinces, leaving 2.9 million people short of drinking water.

The drought has caused direct economic losses of 4.7 billion yuan (760 million U.S. dollars) and affected about 1.15 million hectares of farmland, meaning nearly 114,000 hectares will bear no harvests, according to the MCA.

Governments of Jiangxi and Hubei have earmarked a total of eight million yuan to help alleviate the shortage of drinking water.
