Papua searches for survivors of avalanche that buried more than 2,000 people

More than 2,000 people were buried by the large avalanche that devastated a remote town in northern Papua New Guinea on Friday, according to the National Disaster Center, while rescue efforts are complicated by the instability of the terrain and difficult access to the area. .

According to a letter from the center dated Sunday and sent this Monday to the coordinator of the United Nations (UN) in the country, to which EFE had access, “more than 2,000 people were buried alive” by the “massive avalanche” that occurred near the Porgera gold mine, in the province of Enga, in the north of the country.

The avalanche, which occurred on Friday at 3:00 am, “it caused a great destruction of buildings, gardens and has had a great impact on the economic support of the country”states the letter, which adds that the main access road to the Porgera mine “is completely blocked.”
