Giant landslide torns down buildings and school – highway sinks by more than 8 meters in China


A rain-triggered landslide torn down the buildings of the village committee, a village clinic, a primary school and 44 other residences on Thursday night in a village in Dayao County, in China’s Yunnan Province.

The road surface of a highway sank more than eight meters and the traffic has been blocked.

Thanks to evacuation, all the 158 villagers from the 44 residences and 59 teachers and students from the primary school have been guided to safety.

The local government immediately sent rescue teams and relief supplies to the site. Geologists are now working at the site and construction workers are busy repairing the road damaged.

A medical team has arrived at the shelters for medical treatment and epidemic prevention.
