China Recovering From Severe Winter Weather

China appears to be recovering after what is believed to be the worst winter weather in 100 years has subsided. Repair crews were scrambling to restore electricity to the last few affected areas, while power had been restored to 162 counties by Wednesday afternoon. Snarled transport returned to normal on Wednesday, and the China Meteorological Administration lifted a severe weather emergency alert issued January 25 that had required regional offices to remain staffed around-the-clock. More than 80 people were killed, 300,000 homes destroyed and some 220 million acres of crops ruined.
