GUIYANG, July 9 (Xinhua) -- Rain-triggered landslide disrupted the Sichuan-Guizhou Railway at Tongzi County in southwest China's Guizhou Province at around 8 a.m. Friday, said local authorities Friday.
The landslide carrying 2,000 cubic meters of debris occurred at Dahe Town. Over 300 workers with seven excavators were battling to repair the railway, said Wang Zhong, head of Tongzi County government.
"The railway is expected to be fixed by 5 p.m. A total of ten trains would be affected by the accident," said Wang.
The heavy rain that pounded the province from Thursday to early Friday morning trapped forty families at Wuchuan County, Zunyi City. They have been evacuated as of 11 a.m. Friday, said county official Liu Shengming.
No causalities have been reported yet.
