SYNOPSIS
This is a scary story about four good Chinese dragons and how they helped people survive during some of the major Chinese disasters of the past centuries and even in recent times.
 

Facts about dragons:
A Chinese dragon, also known as Loong, is a legendary creature in Chinese folklore.
They have animal-like features and are commonly depicted in form of a snake with four legs.
They have auspicious power, strength, and are considered a sign of good luck to those who are worthy of it.
Several Chinese proverbs refer to dragons. For example, 'Hoping one's child become a dragon.'
 
Facts about Chinese:
They are extremely proud of their ancestors for four of the great inventions that 'Changed the World': the magnetic compass, gun powder, paper making, and printing.

The sky dragon lived in China for years, floating on the clouds above the mountain territories.
These areas suffered from landslides, debris flows and rock collapses.
After the rock collapse on August 14, 2019, at a section of the Chengdu-Kunming railway in south-west China's Sichuan province, the sky dragon came down from the clouds and warned people to stay away from the area, saving many lives in the process.
A picture of this rock collapse disaster is shown below:

The blue dragon lived in caves in the north regions of China where there are often warnings of droughts. The 1876 to 1879 famine, during the Qing dynasty, was due to crop failures from the drought.
Later, they had the Great Chinese Famine of 1958-1960.
The blue dragon assisted the farmers by replanting thousands of acres of farmland and was able to get it to rain with the help of his fellow dragon, the sky dragon, saving further losses from starvation.
A picture of one of the blue dragon's cave is shown below:

The red dragon lived in the southern region of China where earthquakes occurred, like the Shaanxi earthquake of 1556, the Tangshan earthquake of 1976, and the Sichuan earthquake of 2008.
He sensed the earthquake and warned many people of this fatal event, and saved many Chinese people living in the province.
A picture of the Sichuan earthquake is shown below:

The green dragon lived in the coastal regions which were prone to storm surges and red tides, while the country's forests and grasslands were prone to fires. The Black Dragon Fire of 1987 burnt a total of 18 million acres of forest along the Amur river.
Typhoon Nina in 1975 caused the Banquia Dam in Zhumadian, Henan province, to collapse due to heavy flooding and devastated the areas downstream.
The green dragon helped in the aftermath of the disasters and gave first-class first aid to the hundreds of people needing it.

Recently, in 2019, a forest fire in south-western China turned deadly over the weekend, when winds shifted unexpectedly, trapping firefighters and local officials in a maelstrom.
The green dragon helped the firefighters by flying over the forest fires with large containers of sea water and dropping huge amounts over the trees on fire.

Later that same year, when the coronavirus emerged in Wuhan, China, the four dragons had a meeting as a team. They wanted to improve their services to aid the Chinese people more effectively.
They chose the green dragon as their team leader after a lengthy discussion.
Viewing him transform into human form was the reason behind their choice.
 
The team leader then suggested they use their superpowers and each transform themselves temporarily into human form.
They went to Wuhan and assisted during the lock-down of the 'wet market' where the coronavirus was said to have emerged.
They also aided in the clean-up, and eventually, with the restart of the market several months later in 2021.
 
Meanwhile, the coronavirus had spread all over to different parts of the world.
 
Below are pictures of the four dragons transformed into their human forms; it was a variety team as one can see.

The four dragons were exhausted from burnout when the wet market in Wuhan was cleared and allowed to reopen in 2021.
The four dragons in human form had done a marvellous job of cleaning up and providing new and fresh products for with the shopkeepers, fishermen, and animal and vegetable farmers.
They left Wuhan feeling proud of what they had accomplished.
 
Next, they used their superpowers to transform back to their individual dragon forms.
 
The sky dragon went back to the clouds in the mountain territories of China and continued to alert the nearby habitants against future landslides and rock collapses.
 
The blue dragon went back to his cave in the north region of China and is resting until the Spring planting season begins in 2021.
Then he would use his superpowers to provide rainfall and avoid future drought and certain crop failures for the farmers.
 
The red dragon returned to the southern region to detect ground disturbances that signal where the next earthquake would occur and determine how strong it will be.
He could then warn the residents in that area of the threatening earthquake.
 
The green dragon returned to the coastal regions to pre-warn the people of the next storm and provide them with enough time to temporarily move and avoid the brunt of the storm and possible flooding.

The four Chinese dragons continued to work until the coronavirus had been mainly controlled in China with the vaccines and the restrictions applied vigorously alongside mask wearing, physical distancing and hand washing.

A few years later, in 2024, in the Chinese Zodiac calendar 'Year of the Dragon' they happily and proudly retired.
Occasionally, during their retirement, they would reappear in the Chinese New Year's Parade.
