Luojiayu village is one of the worst-hit areas in Zhouqu county. It's where more than 30 villagers, including the elderly and children, gathered to hear a lecture from a rescue team.
Soldiers and officers from Sichuan province are teaching the villagers how to know if a mudslide is coming, and what to do to save themselves.
Wei Zheng, Rescue Team Member, said, "When a mudslide occurs, the earth and rocks are loose. A slight tremor or a little rain could cause a collapse. Some houses are also dangerous. So, don't go under these buildings."
Mr. Wei also said people should be cautious when there's a loud sound in the valley, which is a sign of mudslide. And, when fleeing, don't go downstream, head up a hill.
