According to state media, a landslide in Yunnan left at least 47 people buried

  • A landslide in the mountainous Yunnan province of southwest China has buried 47 people.
  • Searches are being conducted to locate victims who may be buried in 18 dwellings.
  • Landslides claimed the lives of at least 70 people last year.

In the midst of bitter cold and snowfall, a landslide in the mountainous Yunnan province of southwest China has buried 47 people and forced 200 more to flee. The catastrophe struck in the northeastern region of the province, in the village of Liangshui.

Searches are being conducted to locate victims who may be buried in 18 dwellings. There have been no early reports of fatalities or injuries. When the landslide happened, 35-year-old Luo Dongmei was asleep. She survived and was taken to a school.

A landslide

After a landslide, Luo’s brother woke her, her husband, and their three kids. Although food was given to them at the school, they are still in need of blankets and other winter clothing. Luo is left to wait since she was unable to get in touch with her sister and aunt, who resided closer to the landslide site.

Avalanches in northwest China this week imprisoned more than 1,000 people in a secluded skiing location for a week. Tourists and locals in a town close to China’s borders with Mongolia, Russia, and Kazakhstan were left stranded after avalanches blocked roadways.

In China, landslides—which are frequently brought on by rain or dangerous construction—occur frequently. Landslides claimed the lives of at least 70 people last year, including more than 50 in an open pit mine in Inner Mongolia.

14 laborers lost their lives in 2021 when a tunnel that was being built flooded. The strongest earthquake to strike China in recent memory, which left over 14,000 homes demolished and at least 149 people dead, happened just over a month before the avalanche.
