Premier Wen Jiabao says getting local residents lives' back to normal is the number one priority for the mudslide-stricken Zhouqu county. Premier Wen made the remarks during another visit to northwest China's Gansu province at the weekend. He visited a makeshift shelter at a local school, which is home to more than 700 people.
Wen Jiabao promised the government will provide enough food, water, clothing and medical care to survivors and prioritize reconstruction efforts. The Premier also inspected the barrier lake and Bailong river, saying the blocked river should be drained quickly.
He also urged close surveillance around the geologically unstable areas. A rain-triggered mudslide hit Zhouqu on August the 8th, causing at least 14-hundred deaths with 330 people still missing.
