However some modern historians suggested that the nearby Xihan River , a major tributary of the neighbouring Jialing River to the west, historically drained into the Han River instead, and was later rerouted by a large earthquake at the Wudu Commandery (武都郡, in modern-day eastern Longnan ) in 186 BC, possible due to landslide damming . This might explain the city's name, since its location was historically once the middle point of the ancient Han River
