BEIJING, April 22 (RIA Novosti) - A severe drought has left more than 160,000 people in northwest China without drinking water, regional media reported on Wednesday.

Abnormally warm temperatures and strong winds have dried up reservoirs in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, leaving not only local residents without water, but also some 1.2 million head of cattle.

Chinese authorities have sent some 70 million cubic meters of water from surrounding reservoirs to the drought-stricken region.

Most of China's northern territories have not seen any rain for more than 100 days.
