A rainstorm triggered landslide has killed at least 65 people in northwest China's Gansu province.
The Zhouqu county in the Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture was hit hard by rain storms on Saturday night, collapsing houses and cutting off power supplies. The continuous downpour formed a barrier lake in the downtown area early on Sunday morning, submerging half the county in water.
Officials say the sudden surge on rushing water and damage to monitoring stations, has made it hard to obtain information on nearby rivers. Experts are on their way to Zhouqu, to help find ways to detonate the barrier. The Lanzhou military command has dispatched troops and two medical teams to the disaster hit zone.
