Landslide kills at least five in Santiago Province, Chile.

Five people have been confirmed dead and another fifteen are missing following a landslide that hit the town of Santa Lucia in central Santiago Province, Chile, on Saturday 16 December 2017. The deceased have not been named, but have been identified as a 68-year-old-woman, a 35-year-old man, a foreign tourist and two other people. The incident happened at about 9.20 am local time, after over 11 cm of rain fell within 24 hours, liquefying soil on the hillside above the town, and resulting in a massive mudflow that swept through the town, destroying about a third of the buildings, and triggering a fire that destroyed several more.

Landslides are are a common problem after severe weather events, as excess pore water pressure can overcome cohesion in soil and sediments, allowing them to flow like liquids. Approximately 90% of all landslides are caused by heavy rainfall. December is usually a very dry month in Santiago Province, which usually receives less than 2.5 mm of rain in the entire month, making this weeks event truly exceptional.

  2. SCAMMERS DRAINED AND RUINED ME FINANCIALLY AND LEFT ME HOMELESS BUT THANKS TO PROSPER LOAN PLC:- prosperloanplc@gmail.com or call +1(205) 224-8709 .

    Greetings to everyone, Life they say is full of deceit. No torture and pain can be compare to what i Theresa L. Bernard experience in the hands of scammers, I trusted the words of those fake loan lenders without verifying, I lost more than $12,500 in the quest of obtaining a loan. I defaulted in my bills but i keep on falling victim my life has been piece of trash full of mess. My kids dropped out of school, My bank denied me credit because my credit score was down already. Until last week a very close friend told me that she got a loan from PROSPER LOAN PLC that i should also give it a try. Not having an option I contacted them with a heart full of sorrow and skepticism i shyly follow their procedures comply to their policy, I was waiting for the bad news like every other loan company i contacted gave me then i receive a credit alert that my bank account has been credited with $250,000 which i initially applied for instantly tears of joy roll out of my eyes because I never believe it will come through. Whenever you are in need of any kind of loan don't be a prey and contact the one true loan company via their information. Email: prosperloanplc@gmail.com or Call +1(205) 224-8709 and receive your financial breakthrough. .....
