Heavy rain has triggered a massive landslide in Colombia, reportedly killing at least 14 people and leaving nearly 60 missing.

The landslide occurred in Manizales in the central Caldas State on Saturday.

Red Cross officials say the slope of a mountain collapsed and buried many houses, killing 14 people and injuring 13.

Emergency workers are using heavy machinery to search for survivors.

The South American country is experiencing record downpours during this year’s rainy season. Local media say floods and landslides have killed 37 people and affected more than 240,000.
