In July, Chinese weather experts issued a number of heat advisories for the country's northern regions.

It took place as some places were anticipated to achieve temperatures beyond 40°C, placing strain on already overworked electricity networks.

China has been experiencing oppressive heat for several weeks, which has prompted local governments to advise citizens and companies to reduce their use of electricity. 

The severe temperatures may surpass last year's scorching spell, which lasted for more than two months, according to weather experts' predictions.

The orange alerts were issued by China's meteorological office due to high temperatures, primarily in northern China.

Parts of the Chinese capital Beijing were affected, and temperatures were predicted to reach or exceed 40°C in the provinces of Hebei and Henan.

Beijing has already issued a red warning, the highest in a three-tiered alert system, by 7 am local time (2300 GMT). 

The majority of the city's maximum temperatures are forecast to reach beyond 40°C, according to the government-backed Beijing Daily.

North China's central and eastern regions, including the Inner Mongolia region, Shaanxi, and Shandong provinces, were covered with orange alerts.

The municipality of Chongqing in China's southwest is still experiencing torrential rain. 

Statistics show that as of July 5 at 11 p.m. local time (1500 GMT), flooding and geological disasters had occurred in 310 townships throughout 19 districts and counties.
