Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

BEI­JING—China’s me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal au­thor­ity on Thurs­day warned cen­tral, south­west and north­west re­gions of pos­si­ble ge­o­log­i­cal dis­as­ters.

Parts of Hubei, Sichuan, Chongqing, Yun­nan, Tibet, Shaanxi, and Xin­jiang should brace for po­ten­tial ge­o­log­i­cal dis­as­ters from Thurs­day night to Fri­day night, as heavy rain has been fore­cast, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment is­sued by the Na­tional Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Cen­ter (NMC).

The NMC warned that floods and moun­tain tor­rents were highly likely in parts of Hubei, Sichuan, Chongqing and Shaanxi. The NMC sug­gested the pub­lic should also take pre­cau­tions.—Xinhua
