Mudslide and Explosion in Shenzhen

Disaster struck an industrial area in China again today, but this time it was a natural disaster, a mudslide burying several blocks of industrial facilities and triggering an explosion, either in a gas plant or in a pipeline. Various reports in recent hours put the number of people missing between 29 and 73. The mudslide struck an industrial park in Shenzhen near the border with Hong Kong. Around 1,000 people escaped ahead of the mudflow, which struck in the late morning. Several buildings collapsed, some were buried, and one was shown close to tipping over after being dislodged by the flowing mud.
