Landslide Buries 3 Homes in Bolivia

LA PAZ – A hail storm caused a landslide that buried at least three homes in a town in western Bolivia, affecting 20 families, media outlets said Tuesday.

Mud and rocks covered homes, vehicles and a tractor in Luribay, a municipality in the La Paz district, an agricultural official told Radio Erbol.

Besides spurring the landslide, the hail storm destroyed area farmers’ crops.

The families who lost their homes are in a makeshift camp at the town’s soccer field.

Landslides are common during Bolivia’s October-March rainy season.

Fourteen people, including several children, died in February when a rain-soaked hill collapsed on top of several houses in the central province of Cochabamba.

A month earlier, eight people were killed by a landslide in the tourist village of Rurrenabaque.
