Location: Medellin, Colombia

A landslide following weeks of drenching rains buried more than 50 homes in northwestern Colombia, killing at least two people and likely leaving dozens trapped beneath mud and rubble, officials said Sunday.
Antioquia state emergency management director John Rendon said two bodies have been recovered and six injured people have been rescued after the mudslide in the Medellin suburb of Bello. The Red Cross says 1,821 homes have been destroyed and another 256,083 damaged.
