Nanfeng county in east China’s Jiangxi Province has recently been affected by a strong cold wave and experienced a continuous drop in temperature bringing frosts. The cold snap has resulted in a temperature of around minus 1 degree Celsius in local high-altitude mountain areas, creating a scene of icicles.

The county’s authorities sent timely alerts to fruit production bases and worked out a raft of detailed measures for potential disaster prevention and post-disaster recovery, in an effort to alleviate the negative impact of extreme weather on agriculture industries.
