29 June 2020 – Kills livestock, strands motorists
Herdsmen in Tekes County, northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region have endured heavy losses after Monday’s blizzard froze to death almost 500 livestock animals across the county. (Video shows just-shorn sheep killed by the cold.)
The snow also disrupted traffic in Nilka County of Ili Kazak Autonomous Prefecture. Over 400 tourists in 130 vehicles were stranded either in the Tangbra Mountain or on the Dushanzi-Kuche Highway, which runs through the Tianshan Mountain from its south end to north end.
