At least 41 dead following landslide near Pune in Maharashtra.

At least 41 people have died and between 120 and 350 are missing after a landslide destroyed the village of Malin, about 80 km north of Pune in Maharashtra State, on the morning of Wednesday 30 July 2014. The incident occurred after about two days of heavy rains, and continuing rain is said to be severely hampering rescue attempts. Landslides 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.

July is peak monsoon season in Pune District, with an average monthly rainfall of 187.2 mm, out of an annual average of 721.7. This year, however, rainfall in the area has been exceptionally high with 83 mm falling in the 24 fours prior to the landslide. The situation is thought to have been made worse by extensive deforestation in the area, with trees being harvested in an unregulated way for timber for use in the construction and mining industries. Tree roots can help to hold soft sediments together on slopes, and deforestation is often associated with landslides.
