(TibetanReview.net, Nov 13) – A total of 863 herdsmen belonging to 289 households were stranded in Matoi (Chinese: Maduo) County of Golog Prefecture, Qinghai Province due to incessant snowfall from Oct 27 to Nov 5, reported China’s official Xinhua news agency Nov 11. The worst hit were reported to be Madoi, Gade, Darlag counties in the prefecture while Yushu prefecture too was hit.

“Traffic has been cut off as thick snow blocked roads to townships including Huashixia, Machali, Huanghe and Zhalinghu, and the roads have remained icy,” Pema Gya, deputy government chief of Matoe County was quoted as saying.

Trapped alongside the herdsmen were reported to be 27,052 heads of livestock.
