Massive Landslide Kills 15 In Uganda, Africa

Landslide Danger Alert

At least 15 people have been confirmed dead and scores still missing following a landslide triggered by heavy downpours in western Uganda’s Bundibugyo District Tuesday morning.
Bridges were washed away and some 200 homes destroyed in heavy rains that have cut off access to some areas. Rescue operations are on-going.
“It is a major landslide, which has killed about 15 people as from the reports so far received and 50 others are undergoing treatment in hospital,” a local official Godfrey Mucunguzi said.
The news comes a day after authorities announced that at least 49 people had been killed at the weekend in neighbouring Rwanda after landslides caused by heavy rains.
Landslides are not unusual in Rwanda but this year’s rainy season has been particularly deadly with at least 67 people killed from January to April.
