Beijing issues 2nd smog 'red alert' this winter

Beijing on Friday issued its second air pollution 'red alert,' the highest emergency response level, in this winter, as a new round of heavy smog is forecast to choke northern China.

The 'red alert' will last 89 hours, taking effect from 7 am on Saturday until 12:00 am on Wednesday.

During the period, vehicles are only allowed on the roads based on odd or even license plate numbers. 


Public education institutions, including kindergartens, primary schools as well as middle schools, are advised to suspend classes and students can study at home.

Beijing's environmental watchdog issued its first air pollution alert last Monday, and emergency response lasted 72 hours.

  1. Beijing issues second red alert ahead of smog...

    Beijing issued its second-ever red alert for smog Friday ahead of severe pollution forecast to hit China's capital, weeks after putting its emergency response plan into action for the first time.

    The notice from the capital's environmental bureau orders factories to close and pulls half of all private cars off the streets, among other measures, as bad air floods into the city for the third time this month.

    The red alert, the highest tier of a four-colour warning system, will last from Saturday to Tuesday, according to a statement on the Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau's website.

    It will be the second time the highest level alert has been issued since the city established a pollution warning system in 2013.

    Beijing issued its first red alert on December 7, declaring emergency pollution measures following scathing public criticism of the city's weak response to choking smog that settled on the city earlier in the month..............http://www.i24news.tv/en/news/international/asia-pacific/96025-151218-beijing-issues-second-red-alert-ahead-of-smog
