For the second time in just three days, Premier Wen Jiabao is back in Hunan Province. He's there to oversee disaster relief work through the region.

Upon his arrival in Changsha, Wen Jiabao immediately held a meeting with local and State Council officials and heard reports from the provincial government. The premier stressed the most important tasks now are to make sure roads are open, electricity is on, and people are safe.

Wen Jiabao said, "Roads, railways, and especially expressways must be kept open. The damaged power grids must be restored as soon as possible. The people's interests must be safeguarded. In particular, food, clothes and medical care must be offered to stranded passengers. "

The Premier was also in Hunan three days ago to direct disaster relief work.
