Two local women and a male tourist have died after a mudslide hit the small southern Chilean town of Villa Santa Lucia, located near the Corcovado National Park, renowned for its volcanoes, on Saturday. Three people were injured in the incident and airlifted to a hospital. The death toll, however, may rise, as 15 people remain unaccounted for as rescue efforts continue. Some 20 homes, a school and a polling station were affected by the landslide, forcing the authorities to cancel Sunday’s upcoming presidential vote at the polling station. Authorities have set up a shelter for those left homeless in a town with some 300 inhabitants. Power outages and fires have also been reported.
