Also in China the drought reveals secrets under the water

Not only in Germany are there alarming signs of drought caused by climate change.

In China, the lowering of the water level of the Yangtze River has revealed a submerged island in the southwestern city of Chongqing and three Buddhist statues believed to be 600 years old, state media Xinhua reported.

The three statues were found on the highest part of the island, called Foyeliang, apparently built during the Ming and Qing dynasties. One of the statues shows a monk sitting on a lotus pedestal.

The water level of the Yangtze has dropped rapidly due to drought and heat wave in southwestern China.

Rainfall in the river basin, one of the most important in the country, has been 45% below normal since July and high temperatures are likely to persist for at least another week, according to official forecasts.

As many as 66 rivers in 34 counties in Chongqing have dried up, state broadcaster CCTV said on Friday.

The drought, mainly attributed to the ravages of climate change, has been particularly severe this year in various parts of the planet.

In Germany, the drop in the water level of the Rhine river uncovered a series of stones, called 'hunger stones', which have warning phrases carved from past generations.

“If you see this message, cry” and “Life will return when this stone disappears” are read on some of the stones.
