Sunday, November 16, 2014, 5:39 PM - Two women are dead and four people injured after a landslide in southern Switzerland.
Police say a landslide has buried a residential building in southern Switzerland, leaving two people dead, four injured and an unknown number missing.
The landslide happened at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning local time, after heavy rain caused a hill in the village of Davesco, near the city of Lugano, to collapse, according to The Associated Press.
Police spokesman Marco Tutti said police, firefighters and a special dog unit are on the scene searching for survivors.
The four injured residents were taken to a nearby hospital with what are thought to be minor injuries.
