Climate cutting up rough in China.
“Shanxi is a major coal producing province and the Chinese government was forced to halt operations at mines and chemical factories as a result of the rain.
China is already facing an energy shortage which has caused power cuts. The government has been limiting electricity usage at ports and factories.
The local government said it has suspended output at 60 coal mines, 372 non-coal mines and 14 dangerous chemical factories in the province.
Operations had already been stopped at 27 other coal mines on October 4th.”
Millions displaced because of massive rains and floods. Rainfall seven times higher than normal.
