13:28, August 10, 2012

DAISHAN, Zhejiang, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- The death toll from a flood that occurred Friday morning following a dam breach in the city of Zhoushan in east China's Zhejiang Province has risen to 10, local rescuers said.

The floog also injured 27 people, said officials with the county information office.

The 28.5-meter-high dam of the Shenjiakeng Reservoir, a rainwater pooling dam in Daishan county, collapsed around 5 a.m., officials said.

Provincial authorities have vowed to make all-out efforts to locate the missing. An expert team has arrived at the site to repair the dam, they said.

Zhejiang has been lashed by downpours over the last few days with the arrival of typhoon Haikui, which landed in the province early Wednesday morning before moving into neighboring Anhui Province.
