A landslide caused by heavy rainfall occurred on 9 January in the rural area of Rosas, Cauca in Colombia.
No fatalities have been reported however 715 people were affected from 12 different villages - some of which are isolated and unable to receive emergency aid and assistance. The affected 160 families will be relocated in due course.
In addition, the Pan-American Highway, between Popayan (Cauca) and Pasto (Narino), was blocked by the landslide hence inhibiting the movement of food and other essential supplies.
