• Landslides Hit; Death Toll Rises After China Earthquake


    BEIJING, July 26, 2013 (AFP) – Seven people were killed and 15 remained missing after landslides hit a Chinese province where at least 95 were killed this week by earthquakes, state media reported on Friday.

    Two separate landslides struck Gansu following heavy rains, China’s official Xinhua news agency said.

    The northwestern province was hit by twin earthquakes with magnitudes of 5.9 and 5.6 on Monday that Xinhua reported left at least 95 people dead and another 1,461 injured.

    Many cheaply constructed homes were destroyed by landslides that followed the quakes.

    The recent landslides came as China’s northwest continued to be battered by heavy rains and flooding.

    Floods in Shaanxi province have killed 14 people since July 18, Xinhua said.

    Since rainstorms began last Thursday 189,000 people have been relocated, the agency cited local officials as saying.
