Mudslide Kills Two in West Colombian City

BOGOTA A mudslide killed a woman and her daughter when it crushed their house in the Colombian city of Armenia, and the avalanche of rain-soaked earth is threatening to destroy three more houses, local government officials reported on Sunday.

Three other people who lived in the dwelling that was buried emerged unscathed in the incident, the spokesperson for the Committee to Prevent and Attend to Disasters, or CPAD, Clara Ines Alvarez.

The mudslide killed the 30-year-old woman and her 14-year-old daughter, Alvarez said, adding that CPAD had recommended that three nearby homes be evacuated as a result of the collapse of the adjacent hillside.

Alvarez said that the incident was caused by heavy rains that have fallen in western Colombia, adding that another five urban portions of Armenia, which is the capital of Quindio province, have been placed on alert for incidents of this type.
