New rainfall has triggered even more landslides in China's northwest Gansu province.
The flooding that has ravaged the region is also making rescue efforts difficult. Twenty-four people have been killed and 24 people have been reported as missing.
The recent flooding comes on the heals of earlier mudslides, which left more than 1,100 dead and 600 missing.
The wet weather has also caused other mudslides to occur in parts of the communist country's southwest Sichuan province. Five people have been killed and 500 have been stranded in the rural mountain area.
State media has reported numerous cases of dysentery, although an epidemic has not been confirmed.
"We will seize every chance to find survivors, but it is also important to ensure the safety of rescuers," said army officer Zhang Guiquan told Xinhua.
The death toll from the flooding in China is estimated to be at more than 2,000. It has caused tens of billions of dollars in damage across 28 provinces and regions.
