China's Ministry of Civil Affairs on Tuesday sent more relief materials to southern regions that had been hit by icy weather, the ministry said in a statement.

The batch of 35,000 quilts and 20,000 cotton coats were on their way to the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Chongqing Municipality and the provinces of Sichuan and Jiangxi.

Since New Year's Day, freezing weather along with sleet has affected several southern regions, disrupting traffic and lives.

Weather forecast said Tuesday freezing weather and sleet will continue in south China over the next three days.
