Thousands of passengers wait in the rain outside the railway station in Guangzhou, in the southern province of Guangdong, after blizzards and ice storms disrupted train service across much of southern and eastern China.
Waiting in Line
Hopeful passengers wait in a snow-covered yard in Wuhan, in China's central Hubei province. China expects more than 2.3 billion trips by commuters criss-crossing the country for family reunions and holidays over the Chinese New Year holiday season, a voyage now jeopardized by the weather.
Passengers wait for their trains amid the rain at the square of Guangzhou Railway Station. Over 500,000 passengers were stuck in Guangzhou in the transport havoc caused by heavy snow to the north.
Giving It a Rest
Chinese passengers sleep on benches at the Wuhan railway station. The weather closed airports, highways and train lines across central and eastern China, stranding tens of thousands of travellers and threatening to block food supplies.
