Crews are rushing aid into isolated communities in China, following this weekend's deadly earthquake

A 6.6 magnitude earthquake struck southwestern China on Saturday. As many as 180 are believed to be dead, and more than 11,000 injured.

Officials say the quake sheered off a mountainside and isolated as many as half a million people from water and basic supplies.

This morning, crews used dynamite to blast a path through and will continue to work to get food, water and other supplies to those affected.
