Hot weather hits northern China, fireworks production delayed

The heatwave continues in northern China with Beijing having recorded more than 10 days with temperatures above 35 degrees Celsius (or 95 degrees Fahrenheit) during the month of July, according to the National Meteorological Center of China.

This coming week in Liuyang, Hunan, the temperature is expected to remain in highs of 38-40 degrees Celsius (or 101-104 degrees Fahrenheit). As soon as the temperature reaches 32 degrees Celsius (or 90 degrees Fahrenheit), all fireworks production involving mixing of chemicals must stop. Assembly of fireworks is stopped when temperature reaches 35 degrees Celsius (or 95 degrees Fahrenheit)
