It's been a week since landslides hit Zhouqu County in northwest China's Gansu Province.
The death toll has risen to 1,156, with 588 still missing as of Friday. Officials say over 1,200 residents have been rescued. More than 15-hundred others are living in makeshift camps.
Further downpours on Wednesday and Thursday brought more trouble to the already devastated countyseat of Zhouqu, leaving three more people missing.
The rains triggered floods and mudslides along the Bailong River. A fresh surge of floodwater in the river has passed through the barrier lake in Zhouqu County without causing further damage. Gansu Province has received over 120 million yuan in cash donations and relief materials over the past week.
