GUIYANG - A landslide that occurred at a village in Bijie city, Southwest China's Guizhou province, Thursday night, has left one trapped and two others missing, local authorities said Friday.

The rescue work is still under way.

According to the Nayong county government, the landslide also damaged power supply facilities, causing blackout in several villages in Gukai and Yangchang townships.
