Second village evacuated in Swiss rockslide valley
Heavy overnight storms unleashed further landslides in the Val Badosca, forcing residents of a second village to evacuate in canton Graubünden. Eight hikers are still missing, presumed dead, following a massive rockslide that fell on Bondo village, in the same region, last week.
Several residents from the village of Spino - one stop down the same valley as Bondo - were evacuated as rocks, stones and mud spilled onto their houses. Two were airlifted by helicopter, but the authorities believe that non-one was injured.
