Beijing Enjoys Artificially-Induced Snow
Clouds continue to cover parts of northern China, near the city of Beijing.
This region had been experiencing its longest drought in 38 years, until snow fell a few days ago.
This snowfall was brought on artificially, as officials seeded clouds with iodide sticks in order to stimulate precipitation.
The drought had caused Chinese officials to declare an emergency in eight northern and central regions, where nearly four million people have been suffering water shortages.
