A pair of earthquakes measuring 5.7 and 5.6 on the Richter scale with multiple aftershocks hit Zhaotong, Zhenxiong, Yiliang area of Yunnan province on September 7, with around 750,000 people affected. Recent torrential rain has triggered landslides and debris flow in the affected areas in Yiliang, causing traffic and communication disruptions. Relief work progress has therefore been hampered. People are now in urgent need of food and shelter.
