More than 2,000 rescuers are searching for survivors of a landslide in eastern China that has
killed at least 21 people.

Several days of rain sparked a torrent of mud and rock, engulfing homes in Lidong village, Zhejiang
province.

The landslide occurred shortly before 23:00 on Friday night and buried almost 30 houses.

Parts of the village remain flooded, hindering rescue efforts. Reports say 16 people are still missing.

Local officials said one person has been rescued so far and is in stable condition.

As well as rescuers, sniffer dogs and machinery, psychologists have also been dispatched to the area to help family members of the victims, local officials said.

Most of the missing are children and the elderly, according to local media, which also said that
compensation had been agreed for those who lost homes in the disaster.

  1. Examine whether your employer can help; some big business
    will chip in on the deposit or help you get a low-interest loan from
    selected lenders. You can also tap a 401(k) or comparable retirement plan for a loan from yourself.
