Low water levels cause power outages
Due to high temperatures and lack of rainfall, the water level on China's longest river, the Yangtze, has fallen to its lowest ever recorded level. A level of 17.54 meters was measured in Wuhan – six meters below the average of recent years and the lowest level since 1865, as reported by the South China Morning Post. A good third of the Chinese population lives along the Yangtze.
