China Floods: Up To 40 Buried In Landslide

The worst floods in 50 years in a region of China trigger a landslide that buries up to 40 people and destroys homes and bridges.

Sky News UK, Wednesday 10 July 2013




Floods Trigger Landslides In China

Between 30 and 40 people have been buried by a landslide in China's Sichuan province, as heavy rains in the area also destroyed homes and bridges.
The landslide in Zhongxing on Wednesday morning was triggered by days of rain, the local fire brigade said on its verified website.
A Zhongxing official said that "so far we only know 11 families were buried and more than 200 residents have been evacuated", but that workers were still searching for others.
Much of China has been hit by heavy rainfall in recent days, including most of Sichuan, where homes have been destroyed and three bridges have collapsed since Monday.
Rescuers are searching for 12 people missing after a bridge in Jiangyou, Sichuan, collapsed on Tuesday, local officials said.
Six vehicles were confirmed to have plunged into the Panjiang River after the bridge collapsed, the Jiangyou government said.
But Lin Rui, who was driving a minivan across the bridge and swam to safety through a torrential river, believed the figure could be higher.
He said there were 15 to 18 vehicles on the structure at the time.
"There were several cars ahead of me," he told state broadcaster CCTV. "A bus or a coach, I can't remember clearly, was running ahead."



Twelve people are missing after the Jiangyou bridge collaspe A man also died in Shifang in Sichuan on Tuesday after a three-storey building collapsed as a result of the floods, which have been described as the worst in the region in 50 years.


The building housed the offices of a local mine.

More than 480,000 people have been affected by the torrential rains, according to a government estimate on Wednesday.
The landslide also destroyed a high-profile memorial to a devastating 2008 earthquake in Sichuan.

In Beichuan, the flooding destroyed buildings and exhibits at the memorial for the earthquake that left 90,000 people dead or missing.
The quake left the Beichuan region unliveable, and the abandoned ruins were turned into a memorial and museum.
Landslides and flooding are common in China's mountainous areas, killing hundreds of people every year.
Deforestation has led to soil erosion and made some parts of China prone to mudslides after strong rains.
China's deadliest natural disaster in three decades struck in Sichuan in 2008, when an earthquake left more than 80,000 people dead. Shoddy building construction was blamed for the high number of deaths.


China: Men Rescued From River Amid Floods

State TV releases footage of the dramatic rescue of two maintenance workers trapped on a sandbar during heavy flooding.


The civil affairs ministry said the flooding in Sichuan has affected an area home to 360,000 people, damaged or destroyed 300 homes and forced 6,100 people to evacuate.




Workmen Rescued From Raging River


Thousands of people have been forced to evacuate their homes after heavy flooding hit China's western Sichuan province.

State television footage captured the moment two maintenance workers were dramatically rescued from a sandbar as a swollen river raged past. The two men had been carrying out work on the Sh*tingjiang bridge when they found themselves stranded in the middle of the Sh*ting river.


A firefighter made his way to the two men before attaching the cable


Firefighters attached a wire to an excavator and the men were able to cross hand-over-hand 100ft above the river. Three people were also pulled from a river when a bridge collapsed in the mountainous region. One car, three minivans and an SUV fell into the river in Jiangyou when the Qinglian bridge broke apart and collapsed. The two-lane bridge was built in 1969 and a replacement span was under construction.

China has been pouring resources into building infrastructure, but many older bridges and dams are of poor quality and urgently need repairs or replacement.

Yamunotri Temple is 'Disaster Waiting to Happen' after Flooding Damages Foundations

By Daily Mail UK, 4 July 2013

Away from all the attention being focused on Kedarnath, the Yamunotri temple, which along with Gangotri completes the 'char dham' pilgrimage, is facing a serious risk.

The committee governing the Yamunotri temple fears a disaster is waiting to happen. Mail Today has accessed pictures taken on Tuesday which show the temple complex has suffered serious damage. These cracks and damage, according to the temple authorities, are worsening by the day. The district administration, however, is yet to take stock.

Pawan Unniyal, vice-chairman of the Yamunotri temple committee, said: "The Kalindiparvat above us, since 2004, has suffered several landslides and the falling debris hits the temple every time, which has weakened the structure over the years."




Hazard: Staff at the Yamunotri temple complex say its foundations have been dangerously damaged by recent flooding


Locals claim the Himalayan disaster on the morning of June 17 altered the course of the Yamuna that flows adjacent to the temple and this has damaged the temple's foundation.

"Now, since Yamunaji has changed course, the foundation of the temple has been weakened as a portion of it has been swept away," Unniyal said.

The situation poses a grave risk not just to the structure but also to the devotees, priests and the other temple staff.

"We have pleaded with the government to conduct a survey and prepare a masterplan to mitigate the present and obvious risks, but there has been no response," he added.




......



The local district magistrate insisted there was no damage to the temple, though pictures seem to show cracks in the walls and a section where the building's base has been washed away.

The administration either remains blissfully unaware of the situation even after a fortnight or is in denial mode. The district magistrate of Uttarkashi, Rajesh Kumar, said: "There is no damage to the temple. If at all there is, then the temple committee will take care of it."

His deputy, sub-divisional magistrate D.V. Yadav was more candid: "Yes, we have heard that the temple complex has seen some damage but we have been stretched owing to the relief work. Nevertheless, I have asked my department to prepare a report on the extent and magnitude of the damage. Based on this report, we will act."

He was, however, unable to say when the report would be prepared.

Missing to be Declared Dead after July 15

By Mail Today in Dehradun




Uttarakhand Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna said the exact number of missing people is 3,064


The Uttarakhand government on Thursday decided to pronounce dead those missing in the flood-ravaged state if they are not traced by July 15.

Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna said the exact number of missing people is 3,064 and the deadline for finding them is July 15. After that, the process of paying compensation to their next of kin will begin.

Eighty critically affected villages are still waiting for relief materials to be dropped by army and IAF choppers. They will have to wait long as heavy rain has been predicted in the Kumaon region in the next two days.


No Relief for Himachal Villages

By Manjeet Sehgal in Shimla

Life has come to a standstill in Upper Kinnaur areas in Himachal Pradesh, where flash floods and landslides destroyed the road links last month, cutting off the valley from rest of the state.

Ration, medicines, kerosene oil and other essential goods are in short supply in many areas beyond Rekong Peo, the district headquarters, and people have been living in miserable conditions for more than two weeks.

The Hangrang Valley and Morang in Upper Kinnaur are the worst hit. People have lost their houses and livelihood and have taken shelter in government buildings or community halls. But without proper clothes, they have to spend their nights shivering.

Though the state government claims to have sent adequate supplies of ration and other essential goods, these provisions have been dropped at Rekong Peo or Rampur and not distributed in the cutoff areas as the roads leading to the villages between Pooh and Rekong Peo have been washed away.

"The road link has been destroyed and the government is yet to restore it fully. We have remained stuck for last 17 days. The government is making tall claims, but the reality is entirely different," said a resident of Akpa village.

Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said, however, said relief and restoration work is being carried out at war footing.
