GUANGZHOU - Train service of Guangzhou Railway Station, a rail hub in South China, has been suspended after landslides blocked a railway artery linking Guangzhou and Beijing, Guangzhou Railway Corporation said on Sunday.
The company could not confirm when the train service could resume.
More than 80,000 passengers would not be able to board their trains, according to the company's estimates.
Landslides cut off the Guangdong section of Beijing-Guangzhou Railway as downpours have been drenching northern part of Guangdong province for days, the railway company said.
Passengers were told not to come to the railway station as there would be no train to board.
