Beijing: At least 13 people killed after a heavy snowfall hits in China. The snow fall started at Wednesday morning in Anhui province of China, reports said. The deathtoll could rise because people could trap in the snow, authorities added.

The worst snowstorms since 2008 have so far affected 1.06 million people in the province, causing direct economic losses of 1.26 billion yuan (190 million U.S. dollars), and 790 million yuan (122 million U.S. dollars) of losses in agriculture, according to China's Xinhua news agency.

Nine cities in China affected badly in the snow. The snow continuing in the region increases risk of life, reports said.
