More than 20 people are feared to have been killed in the avalanche triggered by torrential rains in the central Colombian city of Manizales. While the official death toll climbed to 14, city’s mayor Octavio Cardona estimated that as much as 20 people could have lost their lives in the calamity. A total of 22 people are still unaccounted for. The severe floods have caused serious damage to residential neighborhoods, with some 75 homes having collapsed as a result, and prompted mass evacuation of 400 households, the mayor wrote on Twitter. On April 1, over 300 people died in mudslides and flash flooding in the southern Columbian city of Mocoa, and scores of people are still missing.
