Flash flooding continues to wreak havoc across Burma this week claiming three lives and leaving a path of destruction. Three people have been killed in the floods in Magwe Division,…
A villager in Hpakant told DVB the death toll has risen to two as one of the patients at the hospital died.
“Two of them survived but the other two are still missing. One of the survivors managed to grab hold of a tree root which saved his life.”
“The crack appeared this morning along the road next to the village – it’s about 600 metres in length. If the rain doesn’t stop, it may trigger a landslide.”
“They were tied to bamboo poles and tortured. And they were warned not to scavenge on a ‘Kachin’ site.”
The Rangoon-Sittwe highway was cut by a landslide in Arakan State’s Ann Township, blocking hundreds of cars and trucks from passing on the important commercial thoroughfare.
