SHENYANG, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- A lingering blizzard since Sunday has brought record snowfall, the biggest since 1905, in Shenyang, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province, the local meteorological authority said Tuesday.

As of 8 a.m. Tuesday, the average snowfall in the city reached 51 mm.

Meteorological authorities in several provincial-level regions in north and northeast China have issued alerts for blizzards, as sweeping snowstorms since last weekend affected road and air traffic disrupting normal life.
