A drought hit Hunan Province in April and the water level of Dongting Lake falls recently due to the lack of rainfall. Farms that cover about 121,300 hectares and 440,000 people were affected by the drought near Dongting Lake. Local government has organized 350,000 people to fight the drought with equipment to minimize the negative effect. (Xinhua/Long Hongtao)
