(Rome = Yonhap News) Reporter Shin Chang-yong = On the 26th (local time), a landslide occurred due to heavy rain on the island of Ischia in the Bay of Naples in southern Italy, which is famous as a luxury resort, resulting in the loss of life and property.

According to the Italian daily La Repubblica, a landslide hit a residential area in Casamicola, north of Ischia, at around 5 am on the same day, leaving one person dead and 12 missing.

An emergency rescue team has been dispatched, but rescue and search operations are progressing slowly as the road is blocked by a landslide and heavy equipment is difficult to enter due to the terrain.

Confusion also arose when counting the dead and missing. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Matteo Salvini said eight people were confirmed dead early in the accident.

However, Interior Minister Matteo Piantedossi later issued mixed statements, saying that of the 10 to 12 people missing, no deaths had yet been reported.

Rescue teams found a female body at the place where the landslide started only in the afternoon.

On the island of Ischia, 120 to 155 mm of heavy rain fell for six hours overnight. In particular, between 4 and 5 am, water bombs fell by over 50 mm, increasing the damage.

The crash destroyed at least 10 houses and left at least 100 residents isolated, Italy’s ANSA news agency reported.

At the start of the accident, there were reports that three members of the family, including a newborn baby, were missing, but fortunately it was confirmed that the family was unharmed.

“It is very likely that some of the missing are still buried in the mud,” Interior Minister Piante Dosi told state-run Rai TV. “The situation is very serious.”

Ansa news agency said, “The landslide was so powerful that several parked cars were pushed by the soil and washed away into the sea.”

The Island of Ischia is a small volcanic island with 60,000 people living on an area of ​​10 km long and 7 km wide.

Most of the houses are old and do not comply with relevant regulations such as building laws, which makes them vulnerable to landslides and earthquakes.
