Chongqing - The Ministry of Land and Resources has called for increased efforts to prevent and control potential hazards, such as landslides, in the Three Gorges Dam area as the flood season approaches.

The dam area is currently facing a "grim situation" in trying to prevent and control the potential dangers, Wang Min, vice-minister of Land and Resources, was quoted by Xinhua News Agency as saying.

After the water level of the Three Gorges reservoir rose to 175 meters last September, 97 sections of bank collapsed and 2,000 people were moved, according to the Ministry.
