The search-and-rescue operation continues as 70 people are still missing after a mountain of construction waste and soil swept over dozens of buildings in the industrial park Liuxi in Shenzhen.
According to city’s Vice Mayor Liu Qingsheng, soil up to ten meters thick in some places covers an area of 380,000 square meters. A total of 33 buildings were damaged or collapsed as a result of the landslide.
