By Sunday afternoon, the massive mudslide in Zhouqu County in northwest China's Gansu Province, had killed 1,248 people and 496 are still missing.
Chinese national flags across the country and at embassies and consulates abroad flew at half mast Sunday on a National Day of Mourning. People across China stood in tribute to victims of the mudslide.
By Saturday noon, power supplies had been restored in more than 8-thousand homes, or 76 percent of all those affected. Vegetables were also on sale Saturday for the first time since the disaster. A well which relief workers had been digging for 72 hours is now providing water. Experts say it will be able to supply drinking water for 10-thousand people.
The Ministry of Civil Affairs says Zhouqu has received 106 million yuan in donations and more than 20 million yuan worth of relief materials.
