the 2010 China floods. It was caused by heavy rainfall and flooding in Gan- su Province. The mudslide killed more than 1,471 people, while 1,243 others were rescued and 294 missing people were later presumed dead. Over 1,700 people were evacuated and had to live in schools.
It was a densely populated place, with 50,000 people and an area of 2 km2. After heavy rain, there was a buildup of water behind a dam of debris, blocking a small river to the north of the city of Zhugqu. When the dam broke, around 1.8 million cubic metres of mud and rocks flooded the town, in a wave up to five storeys high, covering more than 300 low homes and burying at least one village. The mudslide left an area 5 km long, 300 meters wide with average mud thickness of 5 metres.
