Rice and crab farmer Pi Xiaozhen, wearing a traditional cone-shaped Chinese farming hat, walks past a boat floating on a pond used to raise crabs, near the village of Wanghu in central China's Hubei Province May 30, 2011. Almost 35 million people across five provinces on the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze have been affected to different degrees by the drought, the Chinese Ministry of Civil Affairs said last week. That number includes 4.2 million who have difficulty getting drinkable water, with direct economic losses nearing 15 billion yuan ($2.3 billion), it said. Farmers said they would need generous rainfall in coming weeks, or the first of their two annual rice crops could wither and die, and more of the thousands of fish and crab farms could lose all their stock.
