Another deadly landslide kills 11 in central Colombia

More landslides have killed 11 in the Manizales, Colombia. Twenty people remain missing. Earlier this month a landslide killed 320 in Mocoa, Putumayo. Before the country could fully recover this new landslide has further stretched resources.

“The airports of Manizales and Pereira are closed at the moment, but as soon as we can use these airports we will be accompanying Manizales in this moment of difficulty. The Director of the Risk Unit and the Transport Minister are there and all those in Manizales can be assured that the national government is going to accompany them the whole time in order to overcome this difficult situation,” said Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

Colombia is particularly susceptible to landslides due to its location in the Andes region and the poorly constructed makeshift houses. Colombia’s deadliest landslide was in 1985, when a landslide killed 20,000 people.
