Severe rainstorm triggers landslide killing one and 10,000 evacuated in Central China
One person was killed in a rain-triggered landslide while flooding has forced the relocation of another 10,000 residents in a county in central China’s Hunan Province, local authorities said Saturday.
Heavy rains started to hit Suining County at 3 a.m. Saturday, with precipitation in one township hitting 186 mm by noon, the office of the county flood control headquarters said in a statement.
The rainstorms disrupted traffic, power and telecommunications in 10 townships. One villager in Jinwutang Township was killed in a landslide.
A total of 112,000 residents were affected and 10,000 have been evacuated, it said.
Also on Saturday, a rainstorm-triggered flash flood tore down 14 houses and two bridges, damaged flood-control dikes and inundated a hydropower generation plant in Fugong County in southwest China’s Yunnan Province, local authorities said.
A total of 264 people in risk-prone areas have been relocated to safe places, the county publicity department said.
Earlier the county was battered by rains on Thursday and Friday.
