A large-scale rainstorm hit the city Tuesday night, with an average precipitation of 60 mm in nine hours, the most in 13 years. A series of rain-triggered mudslides ravaged the suburban Miyun county in northeastern Beijing, killing two people and causing a direct economic loss of 550 million yuan ($85 million). (Photo/Xinhua)
