(CNN) -- Local authorities said Tuesday that a "mud-rock flow" killed six people and left 18 missing in a village in northwest China's Shaanxi Province, according to the state-run news agency Xinhua. About 30 people in Qiaoergou Village were buried Saturday by fast-moving mud and rocks triggered by rain, a Communist Party of China county official told the news agency. Rescuers were able to evacuate about 530 villagers and save five people who were injured.
More than 100 people have been buried in a landslide triggered by heavy rainfall in China's southwest Guizhou province on Monday, state media said.
Torrential rains continued to wreck havoc in China with landslides and floods in northwestern province of Shaanxi killing 111 people and disrupting the train traffic between Tibet and the mainland.

Across China over 750 were killed in floods since the beginning of this year and the official media here stated the death toll could cross 1000.
