Drought continues to parch southern China

As of August 23, 2011, farmers in provinces such as Yunnan and Guizhou in China, report the loss of rice and vegetable crops to a 2010 drought, which has now stretched into this year, forcing many to cut down on meals and buy food instead of selling their harvests as they have in the past.
