Heavy fog disrupted nationwide public transportation on Sunday, grounding flights in some cities.

On Sunday morning, more than 1,500 passengers were stranded at Hedong Airport in Yinchuan of Northwest China's Ningxia Hui autonomous region due to low visibility. Police also closed five highways in the area.

Also because of fog, China Southern Airlines said 44 flights at Haikou airport were affected by Sunday noon, and an unidentified number of flights to Shenzhou were canceled.
