BEIJING – A landslide swept through a mountain town in southwest China after days of heavy rains Wednesday, leaving at least 67 people missing and cutting off access to the area.

Roads, power and telecommunications were cut off when the mud tore through Puladi township in Yunnan province, the official Xinhua News Agency said. Rescue workers have been sent to the township, which is in the mountains bordering Myanmar.

Mudslides and floods have killed at least 1,500 people around the country in the last several months.
