Ad Feedback

Rescue workers in China are digging through rubble looking for survivors after a 6.1 earthquake killed nearly 400 people Sunday.

According to the country's official news agency, Xinhua News, the quake brought down about 12,000 homes and injured more than 1,800 people living in the impoverished Ludian County.
Rescuers were forced to travel on foot after the quake caused roads to cave in. Rain and thunderstorms were forecast for the area on Monday afternoon, further complicating efforts to deliver tents, water, food and other relief supplies to survivors.

Almost 30,000 people have been evacuated and the death toll is expected to rise.
