At least 4 dead in southern China as heavy rain triggers flooding and landslides

Heavy rain in southern China has caused flooding and mudslides, reportedly leaving at least four people dead.

The rain started last week in the southern province of Guangdong. The state-run Xinhua news agency said 10 other people are missing.

Footage from state-run China Central Television showed a residential area hit by a torrent of muddy floodwaters, a large swath of land that was flooded, and rescued residents evacuating buildings by boat.

Other footage showed mudslides along the slopes of mountains, with piles of debris and mud near buildings.

Chinese weather officials warn of more flooding and landslides, saying heavy rain will continue for several more days in the province.
