More than 40,000 residents have been safely resettled after a county in southwest China's Yunnan Province was hit by rain-triggered floods.
The three-day downpours left one dead and 165 injured and damaged more than 10,000 buildings in Malong County. Most of the residents affected by the rainstorm have sought shelter in the homes of relatives and friends in safe areas.
Electricity in 40 percent of the county seat area has been restored after the torrential rains cut the power supply, and full restoration of power is expected in two days. The county government has distributed disaster relief supplies, including 17 tons of rice, 500 tents, 38-hundred quilts and emergency food.
