Landslides in Colombia’s northwestern area of Chocó have killed at least 37 people, authorities from the Prosecutor’s Office told CNN en Español on Saturday.

The latest report did not say how many had been injured.

“We are experiencing a very sad weekend for Chocó,” Governor Nubia Carolina Córdoba Curi said. “Our people feel the pain of the victims. I will not rest until I make sure that all Chocoans have information about their relatives.”

The landslides came down on a road between the cities of Quibdó and Medellín, Colombia’s Vice President Francia Marquez said Friday on X, after the area endured 24 hours of heavy rainfall.

At least 17 bodies have also been transferred to Medellin for forensic examination, authorities said.
