Rescuers clinging to a rope-tied makeshift float search for victims in a flooded area after heavy rains triggered a mudslide in Zhouqu county in northwestern China's Gansu province on Sunday, Aug. 8, 2010. Rescuers searched Monday for an estimated 1,300 people left missing after rubble-strewn floodwaters tore through a remote corner of northwestern China, just one of a series of flood disasters across Asia that have plunged millions into misery.
