BEIJING - Authorities in Beijing relocated 12,186 people in 45 suburban villages as of Thursday morning to avoid possible geological disasters following recent rains.

The city has been hit with heavy rains since Monday, creating risks for some people living in the city's mountainous regions, the Beijing flood control headquarters said.

The rains have caused sections of some roads to cave in. No deaths have been reported in connection with the rain.

A massive rainstorm killed 77 people in the Chinese capital on July 21.
