Premier Wen Jiabao has urged rescuers to race against time to search for survivors. The Premier visited the worst-hit Sanyan valley on Monday where a village of about 300 houses were engulfed by the mudslides.

He told local residents search and rescue work will not stop as long as there is a possibility of finding survivors alive. Premier Wen Jiabao instructed rescuers to locate places where most people are buried or trapped and to clean the sludge away as soon as possible.

He has also demanded that traffic, power supply and telecommunications in the county resume as soon as possible. Premier Wen later inspected a barrier lake on the Bailong River, which runs through Zhouqu.
