Search resumes for dozens missing in Indonesia landslide

At least 11 persons were buried as landslides struck East Java province in Indonesia, an official said on Saturday.

Four excavators were being used in the search Sunday under cloudy skies. One body was found on Saturday, Associated Press reported.

The landslide - measuring half a mile long and 66ft high, according to Mr Nugroho - overturned vehicles, shattered and buried buildings, and left a massive scar on a hillside where lush vegetation had been torn away. Damaged vehicles almost covered in dirt and broken tree limbs were visible as the search crews worked.

People look at a auto damaged and partially buried under a collapsed house after a landslide triggered by heavy rain at Banaran village in Ponorogo, Indonesia East Java province, April 1, 2017.

Members of the BNPB, police and local volunteers are involved in search and rescue efforts.
