Torrential rainfall has pounded East China's Fujian Province. Tom Fearon takes a look at city of Nanping, one of the worst-hit by flooding.
Roads to Wangtai county in Nanping city have been blocked by massive landslides triggered by the torrential rain.
Crops have also have been badly damaged.
A rescuer said, "We have been digging for two days, and we have just dug more than 400 meters. The situation is too bad."
More than 3,000 residents have been trapped inside the village. Some of villagers lined a path with trees and branches to help get outside.
But it is still difficult to walk and some of them had to scramble to get out of the village.
A local resident said, "All the roads have been blocked, even the small paths have been damaged. We even climbed out."
Houses have been demolished by landslides. Some of the buildings have even been swallowed up.
Power and water supplies have been cut. And food is another main concern.
Local officials say they have only 5 kilograms of rice, which has to feed more than 30 people. And it could last at most for three days.
A village head said, "We have asked people to put all their rice together, so it could last longer."
What's more serious is the crack which has appeared on the mountain. And landslides could be triggered at any time.
Local residents at the areas at risk have been evacuated.
Aid materials have been sent to the worst-hit regions.
