Beijing, China (CNN) -- A fresh wave of mudslides struck southwest China early Wednesday, leaving seven people injured and dozens more missing, state media reported.
At least 67 people are missing in a remote town in Yunnan province, the Xinhua news agency said.
The mudslides cut off roads and power supplies, and toppled a bridge, sending water levels swelling at the Nujiang River.
Wednesday's disaster comes the same day officials raised the death toll to 15 in a mudslide that struck Saturday in Wenchuan county in Sichuan province. Nine others were injured in that mudslide.
Wenchuan county was the epicenter of a massive earthquake that killed thousands in May 2008.
China is still reeling from another mudslide in northwestern Gansu province that struck on August 8 and killed more that 1,200 people.
Torrential rain triggered that mudslide, causing the side of a mountain to break off and bury homes.
