More Missing in New China Landslide

Another deadly landslide, this one in Yunnan. From Al Jazeera:

At least 67 people have been reported missing after new mudslides hit a town in southwest China, adding to the thousands already killed or missing in floods and landslides this year.

Roads, power and telecommunications were cut off on Wednesday after torrential rains slammed Gongshan County town in a mountainous corner of Yunnan province bordering Myanmar.

“The number of casualties is unknown at the moment,” the official Xinhua news agency reported on Wednesday.

However, it said at least 25 people had been hurt in the landslides, of which nine were seriously injured.
