Hundreds dead in SIERRA LEONE mudlisde

The death toll from the flood and mudslide disaster that struck Sierra Leone’s capital on August 13th now exceeds 500 with 810 people listed as missing. Another 3,000 people are homeless. Youth Action International’s Country Representative in Sierra Leone Mr. Donald Kalokoh says the mudslides is the largest loss of life experience in the country since it recovered from Ebola.

« It is difficult to know the precise number of victims, » says volunteer body collector Fessellie Marah, « because so many bodies were broken apart. We are still finding body parts in the rubble ».
The side of Sugar Loaf mountain collapsed onto a community called Regent at around 05:45 on Monday morning. It sent a torrent of water, mud and rocks hurtling down the valley, also crushing houses in two other areas: Kamayama and Kaningo.
