    Lightning killed almost 150 people last month across China, the highest number since records began in 2000, a state body has said.

    According to the China Meteorological Administration (CMA), 141 people died in lightning strikes in July.

    China's top meteorological official blamed global warming for the extreme seasonal weather.

    More than 700 people have died in floods in central China, while millions of others have been hit by drought.

    "Extreme weather has incurred frequent natural disasters such as rainstorms, floods and droughts across the country this year," CMA chief Zheng Guoguang said on Wednesday.
