Floods and landslides triggered by torrential rains in northwest China have left at least 41 people dead and 107 missing, an official said on Wednesday.

Heavy rain ravaged 22 counties in three cities in southern parts of Shaanxi province since last Friday, Xinhua reported.

By Tuesday afternoon, 1.66 million people in the three cities were affected and 27,160 houses were destroyed.

In Ankang alone, two major landslides occurred Sunday night, leaving 14 dead and 35 missing.
