A landslide has happened at the site of a hydropower project in southern China after days of heavy rain. Rescue teams have recovered 34 bodies while 4 people are still listed as missing. "We were asleep when the mountain began to jolt very strongly and before we knew it, sand mixed with mud were floating into our room," survivor Deng Chunwu told the official Xinhua News Agency. Their rooms were filed up with mud and sand up to 10 metres. More than 600 rescuers, including firefighters and police, were searching for the missing and attempting to clear sections of roads leading to the site.

Huge Slip At Waihi Gold Mine

Two million tonnes of rock has slipped at a gold mine in Waihi. No one was working in the Martha open pit gold mine at the time and there were no injuries. The slip was not a surprise because there was one about a year ago. 

There is still movement being detected at the mine, and further rock fall is expected, how ever on a much smaller scale.
