At least 200 boats piled up in Chaohu Lake as the drought hit Anhui Province. The Drought, started in April, has affected 3.29 million people and 950,000 livestock in the five provinces of Jiangsu, Anhui, Jiangxi, Hubei, and Hunan, where dry spell is most serious, according to the latest government statistics. China's National Meteorological Center on Sunday kept its "yellow alert" for the persistent drought, which said that there will be still no substantial precipitation in the coming days in the drought-hit regions.
