The death toll in the mudslide in northwest China's Gansu Province has risen to 1,144, with 600 still missing.

Nine people were killed and twelve are missing in and around Zhouqu, after overnight downpours triggering new floods and mudslides to the already devastated town.

The National Weather Centre has forecast heavy rains in the coming days.

One resident says she is worried.

"Just now, when it was raining, I was a little worried that the same thing as what happened that day when landslide and floods hit the town would happen again. I was a little scared."

The mudslides have leveled an area five kilometers long and 300 meters wide. Floodwaters up to three storeys high have submerged half the county.

The scale of the disaster has made counting those killed all the more difficult.
