CHINA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Rescuers are just now reaching the remote rural corners of southwestern China devastated by a powerful earthquake.
Just a short time ago the death toll was revised again to 208 with almost 1,000 serious injuries.
Hundreds of armed police are blocking the roads that were also wrecked by landslides.
The 6.6 quake was one of the worst earthquakes to hit the country in about three years.
It is the same region hit by a 7.9 quake in 2008 that killed 70,000.
