Torrential rains triggered two landslides in the Yuanmou County in northern Yunnan. A quake lake was formed along the Longchuan River in the upper reaches of the Jinsha River.

Roughly 1.26 million cubic meters of debris moved down the mountains nearby, forming a six-meter-deep lake, measuring 700 metres long and 300 metres wide.

The lake put the lives of more than 8,000 people living downstream in danger, Chuxiong prefecture government said in a statement.

The residents have been relocated by Saturday.

The downpours also destroyed a 300-metre section of the Chengdu-Kunming Railway, and rail service will be suspended for the next five to six days, according to the Kunming Railway Bureau.

Repairs are currently underway.
