Blizzard disrupts traffic in NE China


13:11, January 31, 2012

SHENYANG, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- A blizzard swept across parts of northeast China's Liaoning province Tuesday morning, forcing authorities to impose traffic restrictions on six major expressways.

The blizzard mainly hit southeast Liaoning's Dandong and Dalian cities, with the snow having reached up to 6 mm from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. in Dandong, the Shenyang Central Observatory reported.

More heavy snow will continue to fall in those areas Tuesday, the observatory predicted.

Meanwhile, low temperature will lead to icy roads and the traffic will be further disrupted, it said.

Warnings against more severe snow have been issued in those areas, it added.
