Over 6,000 people have been evacuated after a landslide caused flooding along the Yarlung Tsangpo River in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, local authorities said Thursday.
The landslide struck during the early hours of Wednesday near a village in Menling County, blocking the river's waterway, according to the disaster relief reports.
The amount of floodwater has surpassed 300 million cubic meters. No casualties have been claimed.
Authorities in Tibet have started an emergency response, monitoring the flooded area’s water level, evacuating local residents and sending relief supplies to the disaster-hit areas.
