For his part, an official in the Provincial Council (RUMFI) said that the affected area can not be reached by land, and it is impossible to organize a rescue operation.

The provincial disaster management official said that the authorities in the country would send heavy drilling equipment across the lake as soon as the weather permits, after the huge rocks rolled off the mountain and caused serious damage.
