While the United States just completed its hottest year on record, China is suffering from unusually cold weather threatening electricity and livestock health across the country.

USA Today reports blizzards in the north part of the country have resulted in about 180,000 cattle deaths. The national average temperature since Nov. 20 is 25 degrees Fahrenheit, the lowest in over a quarter of a century.

China is not accustomed to the colder temperatures and shelters in southern China have opened to assist people who do not have proper shelter.

Snowfall and colder temperatures since Jan. 2 have hindered crops in southern growing regions according to Bloomberg.
