WUHAN - More than 300 tourists were evacuated after a landslide hit a forest resort in central China's Hubei province on Tuesday.
The landslide happened at 2 pm at Shennongjia, a forestry resort known for its natural beauty, disrupting the traffic on the No. 209 national highway, said an official with the resort.
No casualties have been reported so far, said the official.
On Monday, a landslide hit the same section of the No. 209 National Highway, which runs from Hohhot, capital of Inner Mongolia, to the city of Beihai, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Traffic of the road section did not resume until 2 am Tuesday.
The resort's workers blamed continuous rainfall for the frequent landslides in the region.
The local government has mobilized machinery to repair the road.
