At least 43 people have died and more than 50 are missing in a landslide in Las Tejerías, Venezuela. Hundreds of houses were destroyed.

Las Tejerías – The death toll after a landslide in Venezuela has risen to at least 43. This was reported by Venezuelan television, citing the Vice President of the South American country, Delcy Rodríguez.

Accordingly, more than 50 people are missing in Las Tejerías in the state of Aragua. The search continued on Tuesday. More than 300 homes were destroyed and hundreds were damaged. Venezuela is already in a deep political, economic and humanitarian crisis.

According to Rodríguez, heavy rain from storm Julia, which made landfall in Nicaragua over the weekend as a hurricane, caused several rivers to overflow. Mud covered large parts of the site.

Las Tejerías has a good 50,000 inhabitants and is located around 50 kilometers southwest of the capital Caracas on an important industrial axis in Venezuela. Tropical storm Julia caused landslides and flooding in Central America, killing at least 25 people. dpa
