Smog Disrupts Traffic in Northeast China


Smog disrupted traffic and caused flight delays in northeast China on Tuesday (December 3), Chinese state media reported. In Harbin, a frigid northeastern city of 11 million people, smog reduced visibility levels to less than 50 metres (164 feet), state broadcaster CCTV said. Buildings in Harbin were shrouded in thick fog. The speed limit on express highways surrounding Harbin was tightened to 40 kilometres per hour (24.85 miles per hour), state-run news agency Xinhua said.
