Headline: China Rocked by Paralyzing Snowfall

At least 50 people are dead after two buses crashed in the midst of China's weather-related transportation crisis. The storm coincides with China's busy New Year's travel season. The crippling weather has affected 80 million people and already caused $3 billion dollars of economic losses.

The worst of the two crashes occurred when a bus slid off of a frozen mountain road in the Guizhou province, killing 25. The bitter temperatures also threaten an extreme power shortage as the heavy snow snaps powerlines and coal prices hit record highs yesterday. The weather, during what is known as the biggest human migration on earth, led President Hu Jintao to warn of more terrible weather and urge the government to "be aware of the seriousness of the situation and be fully prepared to prevent and fight disasters."
