Heavy fog shrouds Beijing and neighboring regions

MAJOR highways to Beijing have been closed as the capital and neighboring Hebei Province and Tianjin Municipality were shrouded in dense fog today.

The average visibility in Beijing was less than 500 meters this morning. The city's meteorological station said the fog would continue tomorrow, and would be dispersed by a cold air tomorrow evening.

The city's environmental protection bureau said that the fog, which has dominated Beijing since yesterday, deteriorated the city's air quality.

Beijing recorded "serious pollution" today, which was rare during this year, according to a bulletin issued by the China Environmental Monitoring Center.

According to the China's Central Meteorological Station, ten provinces and municipalities in north, central and east China were affected by the fog.
