11 people were killed and 20 went missing in a fresh landslide in the Central Colombian City of Manizales in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The landslides affected at least 57 houses, many built on steep hills.

The mayor of Manizales said the city’s monthly average of rain fell in one night.

The disaster comes after heavy rains caused three rivers to burst their banks at the start of the month, killing over 300 and destroying the Southern Putumayo Province.
