Heavy Snow in Eastern China and Korea
Up to 30 centimeters (12 inches) of snow fell on Beijing and the nearby port city of Tianjin in early January 2010. The snow was reportedly the heaviest to fall in the Chinese capital city since 1951. Record-breaking snow fell in South Korea, as well.
Acquired January 4, 2010, this true-color image shows snow coating the area around Bo Hai. Beijing and Tianjin leave big gray splotches on the snowy blanket, and smaller cities appear as small gray dots.
