Continuous downpours and mudslides have wreaked havoc in Southwest China's Sichuan province. Over 600 people have been relocated and about 70 homes have been destroyed.
Sichuan's Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Garze has been lashed by heavy rains since Tuesday. Floods and mudslides have affected six counties in Garze. In Yajiang County, about 15-hundred liquid gas cylinders, were washed into the Nyakchu River Tuesday night.
Rescue workers and villagers living downstream of the river have been mobilized to retrieve them. Flood damage also forced the closure of the National Highway 318. Repair work on the damaged transport link has begun.
With large machines and vehicles unable to enter the damaged area, repair work has largely fallen on laborers, who are trying to clear debris, so traffic to Yajiang County can resume.
