Italy Continues Search For Dozen Missing In Landslide

Italian rescuers are searching for a dozen missing people on the southern island of Ischi.

This is after a massive landslide killed at least one person on Saturday, engulfing at least one house and sweeping cars down to the sea.

About a dozen people were still unaccounted for early Sunday, according to local official Claudio Palomba.

But some people who had earlier been reported missing had since been found safe.

Luca Cari, a spokesman for the fire service said; “We are afraid that there might be other victims, but so far the current figure is one dead.”

He added that the rescue effort was hampered by rain and high winds, which also delayed ferries bringing reinforcements from the mainland.

Officials said they expected to evacuate and find temporary homes for between 150 and 200 people.

The devastation in Ischia comes just weeks after 11 people died in heavy rain in the Italian region of Marche.
