Big Freeze Hits Northern China

Ice storms, heavy snow and freezing conditions have covered most of northern China, the meteorological department said on Sunday. In Tianjin, which borders Beijing and is the second largest city in northern coastal China, all flights were canceled due to heavy snow; road and rail tracks became impassible.
