XINING, (Xinhua): Twenty-one people were killed and three others remain missing after a rainstorm-triggered flood in northwest China’s Qinghai Province, said local authorities on Wednesday.

Sudden rainstorms and hail battered Wulan County in Mongolian-Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Haixi around 7 p.m. Tuesday, washing away more than 20 workers, said the county government.

The workers were repairing a construction site at the time when the tragedy happened.

As of Wednesday morning, 21 people have been confirmed dead and seven others have been sent to a local hospital for injuries.

The search for three missing people is under way.
