In 2012, the annual mean temperature in China was 9.4℃, which was near normal but having some bigger fluctuations. The annual precipitation was 669.3 mm, 6.3% more than normal but with uneven spatial and temporal distribution. In 2012, many kinds of meteorological disasters occurred in China and some places were hit very seriously. There were many severe rainstorm events causing serious regional floods, mountain terrents and geological hazards. Very obvious floods were found successively in Yangtze River Basin, Yellow River Basin, Haihe River Basin, etc. Mountain terrents and geological hazards attacked Beijing, Gansu, Chongqing, Yunnan, Guizhou, Ningxia, Qinghai and Xinjiang. The typhoons named “Damrey”, “Saola” and “Haikui” landed in China in a raw within one week at the beginning of August, affecting 15 provinces (or autonomous regions and municipalities). Low temperature, overcast and rainy weathers in some local areas happened frequently, having severe influences on agriculture. Then, a wide range of snowstorms appeared in northern China for three times from November to December and some regions suffered seriously from snow hazards. In general, 2012 was a year with less meteorological disasters. Direct economic losses were significant though, the death toll and disater hit areas decreased notably.
