Three killed by landslide in Chachapoyas State, Peru.

Three people have been killed by a landslide close to the town of Bagua in Chachapoyas Province on Thursday 5 February 2015. The three were reportedly traveling by motorcycle-taxi on the El Tingo Corontacha Highway close to the town when they were hit by rocks and mud from the landslide following heavy rains. 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. A thirteen-year-old girl who was also buried by the event was rescued after four and a half hours of work by local firemen, and has been taken to a nearby hospital with multiple injuries.

The climate is highly variable across this region, with some areas receiving in excess of 10 000 mm of rainfall per year.
