                                Two people were killed and six others remained missing as of Monday due to rain-triggered mudslides and landslides in southwest China's Yunnan Province, local authorities said.

                                Since Sunday, Drung-Nu Autonomous County of Gongshan has been hit by the heaviest rainfall since meteorological records began, cutting off roads and damaging houses, power facilities and communication lines, according to the county government's information office.

                                As of 6 p.m. on Monday, more than 9,200 people had been affected, including 2,784 residents who were urgently relocated and 427 stranded tourists.

                                At present, communication lines in the core area and external traffic connections in the county have resumed, said local authorities. Rescue efforts are underway.
