Tragedy in Pereira: landslide buried several houses

In the early hours of this Tuesday there was a heavy downpour in Pereira that caused a landslide that -at the same time- caused the river to overflow and buried several homes in the La Esneda neighborhood.

At the moment, firefighters from Dosquebradas and Pereira are attending the emergency and looking for the people who would have been buried under the rubble. The community in the area, where it never stops raining, also supports the search.
