BOGOTA: Heavy rains set off a landslide that swept over a home in central Colombia, flattening it and killing seven members of the same family, authorities said yesterday.
“Sadly, early this morning a landslide was triggered near El Salado, ... in Tolima department. It buried a home, and seven people,” local fire chief Jaime Diaz told RCN radio.
The victims were five women and two little girls, and an eight person was injured, Diaz added.
An unusually heavy rainy season has been blamed for at least 121 deaths in Colombia since September.
The season has been exacerbated by a La Nina weather phenomenon, in which cooler-than-normal water circulates in the Pacific Ocean around the equator. -- AFP
