Poyang's lakebed is full of cracks in Jiujiang, Jiangxi province,
Oct 30, 2013. China's largest freshwater lake, Poyang Lake's water
level descends to extremely low due to less rainfall and decreasing
upstream waters. Its current water level is 8.19 meters, slightly
higher than the water level for a drought, which is 8 meters. Dry
weather will keep influencing the water level and total area of
Poyang Lake in the coming week, which will threaten agriculture,
vegetation and migratory birds in Jiangxi province.
