China News Service, Beijing, March 1 (Reporter Chen Su) The reporter learned from the Ministry of Emergency Management of China on March 1 that there are expected to be 4 to 5 sand and dust events in northern China in March.

  Recently, the Office of the National Disaster Prevention, Reduction and Relief Committee and the Ministry of Emergency Management held a meeting with relevant departments to discuss and judge the natural disaster risk situation in March.

Comprehensive analysis shows that as the temperature rises, the national natural disaster risk situation will be more complex in March.

  In March, precipitation is expected to be 20% to 50% higher in eastern Heilongjiang, most of Jilin, Liaoning, southern Anhui, Shanghai, Zhejiang, northern Fujian, central and northern Jiangxi, eastern Hunan, and northwest Tibet.

Continuous rain or local heavy precipitation in central East China, southern Central China and other places may cause flood disasters, and strong convective weather may cause wind and hail disasters.

At present, the Inner Mongolia section of the Yellow River has entered the river opening period. It is expected that all frozen river sections in Inner Mongolia will be opened in mid-March, earlier than the average annual full opening date (March 25). Some frozen river sections in the Northeast will be opened one after another. Pay attention to Lingqing develop.

  It is expected that in March, temperatures will be low in northwest North China, northern Northwest China, central and western Inner Mongolia, and northern Xinjiang, and there will be risks of periodic cooling and strong wind disasters. Northeast China, eastern Inner Mongolia, central and northern Tibet, and other places will experience more precipitation and low-temperature rain. The risk of snow and ice disasters is high.

Affected by cold air and other factors, one disastrous extratropical storm surge process and three to four disastrous wave processes may occur in China's coastal and offshore waters.

  The discussion pointed out that most provinces across the country have now entered the spring fire prevention period.

In March, the forest fire danger level in some areas of southern Fujian, eastern Guangdong, northwestern Guangxi, western and southern Sichuan, western Guizhou, central and northern Yunnan, and southeastern Tibet was high.

  In February, the first sandstorm in 2024 affected Xinjiang, Gansu, Ningxia, Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi and other places. The sandstorm intensity was strong and occurred early, which had a great impact on the Spring Festival transportation in many provinces.

It is expected that in March, the number of sand and dust days in the northern region will be generally close to the same period of the year to more than normal, with 4 to 5 sand and dust processes, and the intensity will be generally close to the same period of the year to more than normal. It is necessary to pay attention to the impact of sand and dust weather on transportation, energy supply, and agricultural production. Negative Effects.
