A second landslide followed on Friday August 25th, causing rescuers to abandon the search for the missing people.

European Space Imaging photographed the scene from space on Sunday August 27th, using the Very High Resolution satellite WorldView-3.

It can clearly been seen that mud and rubble from the two landslides have destroyed houses and roads.
