Beijing experiences its longest cold snap since 1951

  • Beijing recorded the longest cold wave since records were kept in 1951.
  • the temperature at Beijing’s Nanjiao weather station climbed above freezing on Sunday afternoon.
  • Heating is anticipated to resume on Sunday night once the issue is fixed.

As the bitterly cold temperatures and snowfall experienced in Beijing and other parts of China started to lessen, Beijing recorded the longest cold wave since records were kept in 1951.

For the first time in many days, the temperature at Beijing’s Nanjiao weather station climbed above freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit) on Sunday afternoon, according to Beijing Daily and other Chinese local media.

Longest cold snap

Since December 11, China has been suffering from a severe coldwave, with temperatures falling below zero for more than 300 hours. Multiple system failures have resulted in Henan province as a result of this; in Jiaozuo City, heating has been temporarily suspended due to a malfunction at the Wanfang power plant.

Heating is anticipated to resume on Sunday night once the issue is fixed. Since Friday, Puyang and Pingdingshan have turned off the heating in the majority of state-owned businesses and government buildings to give priority to the hospitals, schools, and residential structures that have limited heating resources.

Numerous persons with cracked bones were rushed to a hospital in Beijing as a result of problems with the city’s subway system brought on by the extremely low temperatures. Furthermore, rescue operations have been impeded by subfreezing conditions in the wake of a fatal earthquake in Gansu province’s northwest.
