Torrential rain triggers flood and building collapse in Tibet

The persistent torrential rain triggered a building collapse in Jomda county, Qamdo Prefecture in south-west China and amp;#39;s Tibet Autonomous Region on July 8. All residents of the building had been evacuated before the collapse and no casualties have been reported.The collapse happened in the wake of the sharply increased water level of Ziqu river in the county. The water washed away the foundation of the building and eventually caused it to collapse and be carried away by the flood.According to local government, the rain that started to fall in June stopped as of July 10. But the long-period of rainfall had already destroyed 24 bridges and damaged 57.8km of stretches in total across 67 rural highways. 14 days ago
