The death toll from the Zhouqu Mudslide stands at over 12-hundred, with about five hundred people still missing. The government in Gansu Province says power and communication have been restored and traffic on many roads has resumed.
Life is slowly returning to normal.
Nearly 10-thousand victims have settled down at three rehabilitation centers in Zhouqu County. About 2.5 million yuan has been handed to more than 300 people who have lost families in the disaster.
Trucks bring tons of daily supplies to the biggest supermarket in Zhouqu. These supplies are enough to last three days.
The roads leading to county are almost all clear, allowing more relief materials to get it. Rescue workers have been canvassing the roads to protect them from further mudslides.
More than half of the 57 transformers in Zhouqu have been fixed, and are able to support 60 percent of the county's electricity needs. All the transformers in rural areas are back online.

However, the meteorological authority forecasts that more rain will hit the disaster zone in the coming days. The Ministry of Land and Resources warns that further rain-triggered mudslides may hit Zhouqu and south of Gansu Province.
