Looks like it will be a year of extreme weather ahead. China Daily reports that at least 48 people have been killed in rainstorms in southern and eastern China over the last five days– “Fourteen rural residents were killed in a lightning strike on Sunday while they were working in fields in Jiangxi province… A 56-year-old woman and her 14-year-old grandson also died when they sought shelter under a corrugated iron roof, while two residents of Nanchang city were killed while they huddled under a tree, also on Sunday… In nearby Zhejiang province, five people building a tomb were killed in a lightning storm.”
