Shenyang has been heavily hit by a severe snowstorm that started on Sunday

In neighbouring inner Mongolia, one person died and more than 5,600 were affected after a heavy snowstorm:

A total of 27 red alerts were issued across Inner Mongolia and north-eastern China – the highest warning alert for snowstorms.

China’s north east region was one of the areas particularly affected by rolling power outages this year

Local traffic has been severely affected by the blizzard

The cold wave, which began on Sunday, caused temperatures to plummet by at least 14 degrees in some parts of north-eastern China. 

In Liaoning, traffic has been severely affected by the heavy onslaught, with most expressway toll stations closed as of Tuesday.

Train and bus stations have also remained shut, except for those in the cities of Dalian and Dandong.

Authorities said they were intensifying efforts to keep homes warm by ramping up coal imports and maximising energy production capacity. It also urged markets and grocery stores to increase food supplies and reduce prices. 

China’s north-east region was one of the areas particularly affected by rolling power outages in September this year, with rising costs contributing to a short supply of coal, said local media outlets. 

But though the power crunch has eased, China’s State Grid Corp had earlier still warned of an “overall tight balance with partial gaps” between power supply and demand through the winter so why has China been hit by power shortages

China is highly dependent on coal for power, though Chinese leader Xi Jinping has pledged that his country will reach peak carbon emissions within nine years.
