Village houses and power stations have been submerged and destroyed.
A villager in Meilonggou said that the landslide occurred at 3 and 4 o’clock in the night. He was awakened by the people in the village and said that the landslides were pouring. After he left, the mudslides buried the village. The film on the scene was startling, a huge torrent was rushing down from the upstream, and some villages disappeared at once wherever it arrived.
