|Shanxi reservoir collapse shuts down highway.|
The top of an irrigation water duct at the Quting Reservoir in northern China's Shanxi Province has caved in. This led to the partial collapse of its dam walls, causing some flooding, and parts of a national highway to be shut down.
Officials say residents near the reservoir have been evacuated. And no casualties have been reported. The Ministry of Water Resources has sent a work team to deal with the flooding.
PLA troops and paramilitary police have also been dispatched to help with rescue work. The No.108 national highway is still blocked due to silt on the road surface.
