Northern rivers will enter the flood season in some provinces with continuous drought in autumn and autumn
Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, 9 Nov (Reporter Hu Lu) the reporter learned from the Ministry of Water Resources on the 9th that continuous drought in autumn and autumn has occurred in some provinces, and the northern rivers will enter the ice flood season. Ye Jianchun, vice minister of water resources and vice minister of emergency management, presided over a meeting a few days ago to arrange the deployment of drought, ice prevention, typhoon and rainfall prevention work.
Ye Jianchun said: since August, the rainfall in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River has been more than 50 percent less than that in the same period of the year. So far, the country's arable land drought area of 26.98 million mu, 1.74 million people have temporary drinking water difficulties due to drought, mainly concentrated in Jiangxi, Anhui, Hubei, Fujian and other places. As winter rainfall is difficult to form effective runoff, it is expected that the lack of water storage of small and medium-sized reservoirs, mountain ponds and other water conservancy facilities in arid areas is difficult to improve, and the difficulty of drinking in hilly and mountainous areas may be further aggravated.
The Yellow River and other northern rivers are about to enter the flood season. Affected by Typhoon No. 24, Nakiri, it is expected that moderate to heavy rain and local torrential rain will occur in some parts of Hainan Province from November 11 to 13.
The meeting demanded that the water conservancy departments in the relevant regions do a solid job in preventing ice and typhoon rainfall, and implement various preventive measures. It is necessary to strengthen the analysis, study and judgment of drought, guide arid areas to consider the most unfavorable conditions, step up the formulation of emergency water supply solutions for urban and rural areas in winter and spring, strengthen the unified management and scientific allocation of existing drought-resistant water sources, and make every effort to ensure water demand. At the same time, we should make good preparations for ice prevention in northern rivers, strengthen ice situation analysis, forecast and forecast, further refine and improve the ice prevention dispatching plan for backbone water conservancy projects, implement ice prevention measures such as duty inspection, and remove ice flow obstacles in the river in a timely manner. Be prepared for extreme weather such as plummeting temperatures. It is also necessary to strengthen typhoon monitoring, forecasting and early warning, do a good job in the prevention of river floods and mountain torrents that may be caused by heavy rainfall, and ensure the safety of the lives of the people.
