A rain-triggered landslide in Ningxiang county led to the deaths of five people. Four people remained missing.

Many parts of the county received more than 200 millimeters of precipitation within 24 hours, with flooding disrupting traffic and telecommunications, while raising water levels in reservoirs and rivers above warning levels.

A search and rescue operation is underway.
