China’s largest freshwater lake that is twice the size of London completely dries up due to drought

Dry land: The pavilion and tower in the distance used to be based in the centre of China's largest lake which has dried up because of drought
The largest freshwater lake in China which covers an expanse twice the size of London has dried up because of an ongoing drought. Poyang Lake in rural Jiangxi province is one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions. But the combination of drought and a new water storage facility upstream at the Three Gorges reservoir – the world’s biggest dam – has caused water levels to drop to dangerously low levels. Much of the 3,500 sq km lake’s water has now completely disappeared meaning tourists can now visit a pavilion and tower situated in the middle by foot instead of by the traditional boat.

    I though the story said that they built a dam. Is it really all drought?
