China’s central government issued its first national drought alert of 2022 on Thursday, advising authorities to “produce artificial rainfall when necessary” due to the “risk of wildfires” across vast swathes of China’s central and southern regions, according to Xinhua, the country’s official state press agency.

China’s National Meteorological Center (NMC) issued a “yellow” alert for drought “above a moderate level” on August 18. The notice applied to areas across the following ten provinces, municipalities, and regions: Jiangsu, Anhui, Hubei, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Hunan, Guizhou, Chongqing, Sichuan, and Tibet.

“China has a four-tier, color-coded weather warning system, with red representing the most severe warning, followed by orange, yellow and blue,” according to Xinhua.
