Rescue and Recovery in Uganda


March 3, 2010 — Recovery efforts are underway in Uganda as the death toll rises from Monday's landslide.

Rescue teams continued searching for survivors in the ruins of a mud-covered village today in eastern Bududa, Uganda.

A landslide came crashing down on Monday night, killing at least 80 people and injuring many others. The slide was triggered by a seven-hour downpour.

A government response team is on the ground with food and the Red Cross has sent doctors in to help out. Some rescue workers have had to scramble to safer ground, fearing more mudslides. Rumbling can still be heard from the top of the hill.

The death toll is expected to rise over the coming days. More rain is in the forecast.
